Edward Hellawell was the charismatic Head of Nuneaton Art School. He was also an accomplished artist and maker in his own right. This exhibition of his work centres on the 1950s, 60s and 70s.
Experience this fine retrospective exhibition of a wonderful artist who was Head of Nuneaton school of Art 1952 to 1966.
Over a period of more than 50 years, Edward Hellawell was a painter, sculptor, graphic designer, and teacher. He also created the Liliput Marionette Theatre. This exhibition will share just some of the work he created. Most date from the 1950s to 70s and is typical of that time in British Art. The Art School was housed in the current museum building so it is particularly fitting that his work is being shown at this location.
This exhibition has been assembled by his daughter Caroline working with the team at Nuneaton Museum & Art Gallery. It is a unique opportunity to see works not exhibited for 40 years.
