Salford, UK.- The Salford Museum and Art Gallery is proud to present “Crowding About and Other Paintings”, an exhibition by James Milroy on view at the museum until October 2nd. This exhibition is a mini retrospective of the last three years’ work of James Milroy’s. Milroy’s work had been referred to as the new L. S. Lowry but with a contemporary setting. Instead of mills there are call centres and supermarkets. Instead of people walking in the park they are at the gym running on the treadmill. There is certainly a topicality to James Milroy’s work with scenes of anti-cuts protestors, royal wedding crowds, a series of paintings on the banking crisis and closer to home football fans, both City & United, partying together after this brilliant season.
