Pi­o­neer­ing artist re­turns to Leeds

Yorkshire Post - Culture & The Guide - - ART -

PI­O­NEER­ING pain­ter Martin Froy will re­turn to Leeds with a new art ex­hi­bi­tion.

In the 1950s, Froy was the first pain­ter to re­ceive the Univer­sity of Leeds’s Gre­gory Fel­low­ship which was launched to fos­ter artis­tic talent. Now 60 years later, the univer­sity has in­vited the artist back next month to show­case the work which first caught the at­ten­tion of the com­mit­tee.

Martin Froy and the Fig­u­ra­tive Tra­di­tion will be open to the pub­lic at the univer­sity’s Stan­ley and Au­drey Bur­ton Gallery from May 7 to Au­gust 2.
