Joe Scarborough - Life in the Big Village

Saturday 17 August 2019 - Sunday 24 November 2019

With a career spanning more than 50 years, Joe Scarborough has firmly established himself as one of Sheffield’s best-loved artists.

His affectionate, often humorous, depictions of everyday scenes of Yorkshire life pay tribute to the region and the spirit of its people. Whether glimpses into bygone eras or celebrations of landmarks across Sheffield and beyond, his bold, joyful paintings have become instantly recognisable.

Today, Joe Scarborough’s work adorns the walls of homes across Sheffield, as well as private and public buildings around the world. Life in the Big Village will draw together over 60 of his paintings and drawings for the first major retrospective in over 25 years.
