A Selling Exhibition of Works by Franklyn J Scott

A Selling Exhibition of Works by Franklyn J Scott

In aid of MACMILLAN CANCER SUPPORT

18/03/2024    

This Spring, Gildings are proud to co-host a selling exhibition of original works of the Market Harborough-based artist, Franklyn J Scott.

In association with the artist, more commonly known locally simply as Frank Scott, the exhibition will feature twenty-eight original artworks and numerous prints, from throughout his career. Locally, his name has become synonymous with depictions of town life in Market Harborough throughout the 1990s, many of which can be found hung and admired in homes and businesses throughout the Harborough district. We're excited to have four of arguably his most renowned works on display and available to acquire - Market Day, The Old Town Hall, Lunchtime - The Square, and Welland Park Tearooms. 

The exhibition is in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support, with a proportion of the proceeds being kindly donated by the artist. Visitors will also have the opportunity to enter a raffle to win a limited edition print of Scott's landscape of St Mary in Arden at night time - a familiar landmark to visitors of the saleroom with the derelict chapel just across the road. Postcards will also be available of Frank's Market Harborough most famous works, with all of their sale proceeds going to Macmillan.

"As president of the local Macmillan Cancer Support group, and someone who has come into contact with a good deal of Frank's works throughout my professional life as auctioneer here in the town, it is an honour for us at Gildings to co-host this exhibition", comments John Gilding, retired director and founder of the family firm of auctioneers. "Frank has very kindly offered a proportion of the proceeds from any sales towards Macmillan, where we hope to build on last year's fundraising efforts as the local fundraising team." 

With a national and international reputation, Scott has become well-known for a variety of landscape work and has sold through galleries in London, Leicester and Newcastle. This exhibition features not only local landscapes, but also views of London, Normandy, and other local landscapes, including a large original of Bradgate Park.

The exhibition opens on Friday 22nd March and runs through to Monday 6th April, open weekdays 9am - 4:30pm at the saleroom. Please note the salerooms are closed on Good Friday and Easter Monday.
