Hedon

FS Smith in Holderness – Then and Now!

FOLLOWING ITS APPEAL made over eighteen months ago, to find works of art by Frederick Schultz Smith depicting Holderness scenes, Hedon Museum is to hold an exhibition of drawings and paintings by the artist.

Frederick Schultz Smith was born at Worthing in 1860 but came to live in Hull and sketched and painted scenes of that city and the surrounding towns and villages right up to his death in September 1925.

Best known for his black and white, pen and ink drawings of Hull streets and buildings, Smith also made a number of excursions into Holderness to sketch scenes in Hedon and surrounding villages. On occasions he added watercolours to his drawings.

Find out more about F.S.Smith via the Hull Museums Collections website.

F.S. Smith in Holderness Then and Now! takes place at the Museum from Saturday 14th April – Saturday 19th May 2012.  

The Museum is open on Wednesdays and Saturdays between 10am and 4pm.

Note: Holderness Ladies Craft Group are currently staging an exhibition at the Hedon Museum of applique, quilting and other decorative crafts until Wednesday 11th April 2012.
