Stirrings is a major solo exhibition by internationally recognised, Salford-based artist Rachel Goodyear. Co-commissioned by University of Salford Art Collection and Grundy Art Gallery, Blackpool, this is the artist’s first major solo exhibition in
Salford. The exhibition includes new large-scale drawings and a new animation, alongside a selection of existing works. The animation shows Goodyear experimenting with structure and sound, while the new works on paper see the artist working at a scale larger than ever before.

The exhibition was on display at the Grundy Art Gallery in Blackpool until 11 June 2022.

Exploring the Collection showcases the work of three local artists – Geoffrey Key, Harold Riley and LS Lowry – alongside works by other 20th century British artists from our collection.

Leaves / Leaving by Lowri Evans

Saturday 2 April to Sunday 4 September 2022

Leaving was a participatory project by artist Lowri Evans which took place under three trees in Salford in November 2021. It was documented by photographer and MA Socially Engaged Photography graduate Joseph Lee.

Reflecting on cycles of life, death and the act of letting go, Lowri’s current exhibition Leaves / Leaving asks what we can learn from nature, and what wisdom we might share with each other.
