Exhibitions at North Lanarkshire Heritage Centre


Strange Horizons – Millie Frood

3 February – 6 May

Millie Frood is a name rarely mentioned when we talk about Scottish master painters. Nevertheless, her style and passion for painting should earn her a place among the greats. This exhibition brings together a collection of her work as well as oral history and objects from her life as an artist in Motherwell and beyond.

North Lanarkshire’s Arts is proud to present an exhibition of work; video, film, photography, creative writing and sound-scape which revisits the context of Ravenscraig in the wake of its inclusion in the exhibition, A Fragile Correspondence…. the Lowlands component part of the 123rd Architectural Venice Biennale 2023.

Contributing (Scotland & Venice) artists will include; Hamshya Rajkumar, Frank McIlhenny and Amanda Thomson.

We look forward to also presenting an extending learning event alongside the exhibition which will create further dialogue around The Craig at a more local level, with a focus on its industrial past, current re-development and a re-imagined future.
