Rat Catchers by Phil Lockwood

Heeley Art Club, which formed in 1895, is to hold its 14th exhibition of its members’ latest work at the Winter Garden, running from this Saturday until next Saturday, April 9.

This time the show will feature artworks covering topics mostly not related to Sheffield, in watercolours, oils, acrylics and mixed media – and everything is for sale.

Pieces will include an industrial painting by Phil Lockwood called Rat Catchers, a view of mountains in Madeira by Ray Beddow and a colourful depiction of a solar flare by Annie Mays.
