There is still a chance to see artworks from the Swindon Collection, never put on display in the town before.

The exhibition ‘Through the Window’ has been enhanced this month with additional work by celebrated Wiltshire-born artist Janet Boulton.

Seven works demonstrate her interest in glass, windows and reflections and there are four watercolours, being shown for the first time since being acquired by Swindon Museum and Art Gallery, showing views from the Swindon School of Art at North Star Avenue in 1974.

Councillor Robert Jandy, Swindon Borough Council’s cabinet member for culture, heritage and leisure, said: “We are thrilled to deliver this exhibition. The works on show by Janet Boulton expand on themes in Through the Window, from the perspective of an artist living and working in Wiltshire.

“Some of the paintings, which are being shown for the first time since entering the collection in 2019, show the demolition of the railway works in the 1970s. They provide important links to Swindon’s heritage, as well as being striking works of art in their own right. I would like to say a big thank you to the Friends of Swindon Museum and Art Gallery for kindly donating the artwork and I’m really pleased we are able to share them with the public as part of this fantastic exhibition at Steam.”

The artworks were kindly given to Swindon Museum and Art Gallery by the Friends of Swindon Museum and Art Gallery, and framed with funding provided by them.

The extended exhibition will be available to view in Steam’s Hawksworth Hall on Saturday from 10am-5pm and Sunday from 11am-4pm. Entry is free.
