KINGSWINFORD landscape artist Ken Wood is set to stage his first solo exhibition at Halesowen's Cornbow Hall.

He will be showcasing the borough's industrial heritage to coincide with the region's Black Country Day celebrations.

Ken's pictures show the Black Country at its industrial peak with scenes from Dudley Castle, the Black Country Museum and the Red House Glass Cone. They depict hardworking folk in foundries, chain shops and glassworks.

A member of Hagley Arts Society, Ken has already exhibited his work at Harvington Hall and Russell's Hall Hospital, while selling his work from as far afield as the USA.

His exhibition, which starts tomorrow (Saturday June 28) and runs until Saturday July 26, can be viewed at the Cornbow Hall from 8am until 4pm every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and from 9am until 11.30am on Sundays.
