Five leading contemporary Sheffield artists will be showcasing their works from a former pub The Scottish Queen based within Park Hill in an art exhibition entitled Overlooked.

The exhibition which opens on Saturday April 18 and runs for two weeks, is the inaugural exhibition of a 12 months arts programme to be based at the former pub.

Overlooked will feature works from Sheffield based artists Andy Cropper, Mandy Payne, Conor Rogers, Jane Walker and Sean Williams. The exhibition will have a strong focus on overlooked inner city spaces.

Andy is a realist painter concerned with issues relating to the ordinary, everyday and unremarkable.

Mandy has a strong focus on Park Hill an creates observational paintings working with materials integral to the estate itself, namely concrete and aerosol spray paint.

Conor paints directly onto found objects such as beer mats and cigarette packets while Jane’s paintings are networks or patterns often resembling textiles, wiring systems, abandoned cities or archaeological sites.

Sean’s paintings focus on the fringes of suburbia, places that feel familiar but escape our conditioned response.

The opening night Saturday April 18, from 6.30-8.30pm when you will be able to meet the artists. The exhibition will be open from April 19 -May 10 from 12noon to 5pm from Friday to Tuesday. The Scottish Queen is at 21-24 South Street, Park Hill, Sheffield, S2 5QX.
