About Representing the Rising: Chartism and Art in Newport

An exhibition curated by Ray Stroud and David Osmond in partnership with Newport Museum and Art Gallery.

Representing the Rising depicts Newport’s 1839 Chartist Uprising as captured by artists past and present; exploring the contemporary scene, portraiture and commemoration. The show pulls together work from Newport Museum’s impressive Chartist art collection alongside significant loans and reproductions. Representing the Rising features important new acquisitions and the recently restored 1840 portrait of Lieutenant Gray, which once adorned the walls of the Westgate Hotel.
