Women of the Northern Coalfields
@ Mining Art Gallery
13 October 2018 - 24 March 2019
This exhibition focuses on women of the 19th century and their untold role in the coal industry and mining communities. Artworks and archival material challenge the long accepted view that women in northern mining communities were simply wives, mothers or domestic workers, content to sit on the side-lines.
