Make time to visit Locomotion the National Railway Museum at Shildon from 2nd February until 8th March this year to see the new exhibition ’Free Pass’ featuring an evocative selection of artwork by the North East’s Catherine Howard, inspired by her father’s time at Shildon Works.
This stunning exhibition of textiles, photography and art by Bishop Auckland-based artist Catherine Howard is inspired by the artist’s father, who spent his working life at Shildon Works.
The evocative pieces are inspired by memories of visiting ‘The Works’ open days, including the smells of diesel, taking a close-up look at the wagons, and pretending to be a train driver.
The artist’s family also enjoyed numerous train journeys thanks to their Free Passes, and the exhibition explores travel by train from Darlington to the seaside and further afield.
The exhibition is in the Collection Building and it is open from 10am until 4pm daily, entry is free for all ages.
