The Brian Morley Exhibition at the Nottinghamshire Mining Museum has now closed its doors.
Eric Eaton, Chair of the Museum said, “We should like to thank all the many visitors who took this final opportunity to view the Brian Morley Mining Artist Exhibition, at the Nottinghamshire Mining Museum.”
Brian’s drawings illustrate coal mining working life in a unique way. We do not believe any other artist has provided such a comprehensive glimpse of the working life of the coal miner in the 1960s, 197s and 1980s.
Brian’s drawings are special, because as an ex coal miner himself, he knows the underground coal mining world from the inside and can illustrate the humour, as well as the tragedy of this dangerous underground working world.
These are two pictures taken of our visitors. Once again thank you for supporting Brian’s Exhibition and the Nottinghamshire Mining Museum.
