To mark the special, and incredibly welcome occasion, the venue will kick things off on Saturday 16 October, with Jock McFadyen Goes to The Lowry: An exhibition 45 years in the making.

The show will be a major retrospective of the Scottish artist’s work, and will run until Sunday 27 February.

Spanning a range of work from throughout his career, the collection highlights McFayden’s ‘passion for painting the overlooked margins of the modern city and its inhabitants, as well as huge panoramic views of the natural world’.

Lowry Chief Executive, Julia Fawcett OBE, highlighted the similarities in subject matter between McFayden and Lowry’s iconic work.

“Jock knows Lowry’s work intimately, and like Lowry, he has been fascinated by the people and streets often ignored by other artists.

“His work also captures the emotional force of monumentally empty landscapes – which makes this show a powerful experience and we’re thrilled to be opening it for visitors to enjoy this autumn.”

The Lowry’s galleries are open: Tuesday-Friday (11am-5pm) and Saturday-Sunday (10am-5pm). Admittance is free, donations are welcome.
