just a few comments that visitors have made are “A great mix of social and geographical history and art” “brings back memories” and “captures the spirit of the Humber.”
Part of the exhibition is a body of work by Sheffield based artist Stephen Todd. His semi-abstract body of paintings, titled Inward Visions, make reference to the wildlife, topography and history of the Humber Estuary.
By looking carefully at the paintings, visitors can see marks representing bird prints in the mud flats and the outlines of famous buildings, including the Hull Tidal Barrier, Grimsby Dock Tower and The Deep.
On Thursday 8 February, 6.30 to 7.45 pm, Stephen Todd will be giving a talk about his art and working methods. Tickets are £5 and can be booked by calling (01482) 392699, visiting Archives at the Treasure House or going to www.eastriding.gov.uk/events
The exhibition itself is a mixture of historical and contemporary art, as well as oral histories, hands-on activities for younger visitors and archive film footage, courtesy of the Yorkshire Film Archive.
‘Humber Estuary: Changing Views’ runs until Saturday. 17 February.
