Going Underground: Paintings by Eric Rimmington,

2006-2011

Interchange, 2008.

Transport for London records over a billion passenger journeys each year through its 270 stations. The name the ‘tube’ was coined in 1890 when the first deep-level electric railway line was opened and the term ‘London Underground’ only became used in 1908 at the same time as the famous logo was introduced. The underground network is an essential part of London life, yet it is sadly lacking representation in the art world.

Eric Rimmington’s exhibition at the Millinery Works puts this to rights with over 40 beautiful oil paintings which show the history of the Underground and perfectly depict the characters that travel on it. The exhibition opens on 22 February and closes on 25 March 2012 and the opening hours are from 11am to 6pm from Tuesday to Saturday and from midday to 5pm pm Sunday.
