Join us at Salford Museum & Art Gallery on the 18th December to celebrate the launch of Ian McKay’s latest collection of work inspired by the Collier Street Baths with refreshments and an after hours viewing of the show.

Artist Ian McKay has found the abandoned gem of Collier Street Baths a constant source of interest. The Italianate brick building is Grade II listed and was designed by Thomas Worthington who is considered one of Manchester’s greatest 19th century architects.

McKay’s artwork focuses on elements of the building’s exterior architecture reflecting its palette, beauty and splendour. His collection of drawings and colour studies completed on location provided him with the resource material to complete this series of paintings. The work offers a visual celebration of Salford’s social history and heritage for all.

FREE, booking required.
