Works by the renowned northern artist are brought together with that of his lesser-known local counterpart, Arthur Berry, for the first time.
The display reveals the influence the two men had on one another, as well as paying tribute to their distinctive individual styles.
Both were working-class artists who chose to portray the world around them in a way that was entirely unpretentious, instead focusing on the experience of the 'common man' and celebrating the beauty and humour in the everyday.
