This great exhibition opens with a picture of a May Day march through Nottingham in the 1970s. 

It focuses on the early to mid career of Nottingham artist Paul Waplington in the 1970s and 1980s.

He concentrated mainly on depicting workers and their families from the industrial Midlands, as well as city architecture.

The exhibition includes the Hucknall miners’ union banner, with the depiction of a miner based on a well-known real-life activist.

But you’ll have to visit to find out who it is.

Paul Waplington, Nottingham Castle. Until 19 January 2014
