Letter of the week: South Shields Lowry exhibition was no draw

On reading the excellent article in the Gazette, May 3 pertaining to the L. S. Lowry exhibition on display at the South Shields Museum and Art Gallery, celebrating 130 years since the birth of the celebrated artist who was inspired by striking landscapes of SouthTyneside and Sunderland, one visited the said Museum and Art Gallery.

LS Lowry's River Scene. Our writer was not impressed by a South Shields exhibition celebrating the painter's links with the town.

In the foyer I was given a leaflet to guide me through the complex network of passages, little rooms and stairways designed to puzzle those walking through and up them.

Eventually found myself in a special exhibition gallery showing the least possible amount of Lowry art you could possibly call an exhibition, and in my opinion was hardly worthwhile the

bother, most disappointing, then had to find my way out.
