Earlsdon: Take Two - Photographs, Drawings, Paintings by Richard Sadler & Nancy Upshall

December 14th - January 12th 1986

Published by the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum in 1986, 24 pages, A4 size booklet. (A21KWSO)

From the introduction: Richard Sadler and Nancy Upshall have long been associated with Earlsdon and its people. When, a couple of years ago, I was approached by them to consider an exhibition they had in mind, I was much impressed by their enthusiasm and conviction. Their idea was to record in photographs, drawings and paintings something of the character of Earlsdon by looking at its architecture, social and business life, the people and 'village' spirit. The result is this highly personal view which reflects both the static and slowly changing aspects of Earlsdon life.

This exhibition has been made possible with the valuable support of Ron Ablewhite, Coventry Building Society, for financial assistance; David Hartley, Colab
Ltd., who provided all the colour prints; Mary Montes for her very readable history of Earlsdon; Liz Hayden-Wells for the design of this booklet; the Art Gallery and Museum Assistants for their patient installation of the exhibition and finally, but not least, a special thank you to all the people of Earlsdon who willingly co-operated in this project.

The condition of the booklet is generally ok. The covers have some minor scuffs and blemishes, and light wear along the edges and corners, but the staple spine is intact and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
