'Sun Over River Irwell' by Harold Riley

WHAT could be more appropriate than Salford Museum and Art Gallery showing a retrospective of Harold Riley's work?

Harold was born in Salford in 1934. His relationship with Salford Art Gallery started at an early ages when he sold his first painting to the gallery aged 11. He went to Salford Grammer School and at 17 won a scholarship to The Slade School of Fine Art, University College, London. Harold Riley has dedicated much of his career to capturing the everyday street life in Salford. 

This is an opportunity to see Harold Riley's work in the city he was born and city that inspired him. This exhibition will be in our semi-permanent space and will run from Saturday 4 May 2013 to Sunday 23 February 2014.
