LEGACY 1st June to 3rd July 2022 at Saul Hay Gallery, Manchester, Manchester 2 June — 3 July 2022 Entrance is free — Visit now

Recognised internationally as a significant (and once again very trendy) design movement, Mid-Century Modern was a response to the post-World War II period. The new exhibition at Saul Hay Gallery LEGACY: A WAY TO LIVE IN THE WORLD has been inspired by the movement, building on its energy and the sense of possibility felt at the time.

It gathers together the works of artists of the original genre: Victor Pasmore; Francis Davison; Ben Nicholson; Paul Feiler; and Terry Frost, as well as pieces from contemporary artists working within this genre today including Elly Dijkshoorn, Steven Heaton, Peter Seal, John Taylor and Neil Wood. The work on display is in a variety of mediums, from collage and painting to sculpture.
