About Post-Industrial

Newport Museum and Art Gallery has been collecting objects to do with Newport’s history, culture and environment since 1888. Using this as their starting point, local artists Sarah Goodey, Dean Lewis and Kate Mercer have created artwork inspired by this collection and the city they live in.

Using photography, illustration and textiles, each artist has used the museum’s collection to explore the effect industrialisation had on Newport’s environment, its architecture and most importantly its people. Living locally, the artists feel it is important that our community and its industrial heritage are celebrated. Featuring pieces from the museum’s collection alongside their work, each artist seeks to bring to life moments in Newport’s history that are important to tell.
