The Fishing Heritage Centre has two exhibition galleries, Muriel Barker Gallery and the Cafe Gallery.

The museum hosts temporary exhibitions ranging from a mixture of travelling shows and exhibitions created from the Museum Service’s own collections and works by local artists and organisations.

Café Gallery

Mark Ives

3rd March – 31st May 2015
Local artist who paints a variety of subjects related to the coast and the fishing industry.

Born in Grimsby in 1967, Mark has always had an interest in the history of the fishing industry ,and his first job on leaving school was working on the Pontoon at Grimsby docks. Much of his work reflects this and other aspects of local history e.g. the `Chums` in the First World War.

Although he has always had an artistic eye, it was only when a serious accident left him disabled by a broken back, that he began his art work in earnest. What started as a therapeutic exercise to distract him from the pain of his injury, soon became a serious creative endeavour.

Having been entirely self taught, his artwork reflects his distinctive style and his attention to detail. He works mostly in pencil, charcoal and pastels. He has also undertaken commissions for portraits of humans, dogs, and horses.Prints and limited editions of his work are available for sale during the exhibition and ask at main reception.
