About The Event
CONSCIOUS CAFE @ Tan-y-Garth Hall delivers another helping of coffee, cake and culture with this exhibition curated by a young art historian influenced by Eugene Halliday's ideas, working in collaboration with his and Schuftan’s biographer.
The German Jewish emigree artist Käthe Schuftan and Eugene Halliday were close friends and exhibited together in group exhibitions in Manchester in the 1940s and 1950s. Käthe was also a member of the Manchester Group of artists which included LS Lowry but was forgotten after her death in 1958. This is the first public exhibition of both their works since the 1950’s.
