Law firm in frame for new art show

Have your say

Sheffield law firm Taylor&Emmet celebrated the start of its partnership with the city’s galleries and museums with help from a very special guest.

Renowned local artist Joe Scarborough visited the solicitors to view one of his paintings, currently on display at its headquarters courtesy of Museums Sheffield.

Taylor&Emmet has three works by local artists on loan from the trust as part of its sponsorship of the forthcoming Stanley Royle exhibition, opening at the Graves Gallery on December 13.

They include Joe Scarborough’s 1974 ‘Pub Interior’ along with Stanhope Alexander Forbes’ ‘Sheffield – River and Smoking Chimneys’ from 1915 and ‘Sheffield Cathedral’ by Stephen Bone.

Joe was the guest of honour at a reception held for Taylor&Emmet staff.

At the event, members of Museums Sheffield’s team introduced the three works of art and explained more about the forthcoming retrospective of Stanley Royle’s work (1888-1961).

Called The Great Outdoors, it is the first in almost 30 years.
