Stan Boardman Exhibitions

The History Society is delighted to announce that we currently have TWO exhibitions dedicated to the works and life of Keighley artist Stanley R. Boardman. At Cliffe Castle Museum we have 24 paintings from Stan’s 1920’s Boy series of paintings on display upstairs in the balcony gallery, while at Keighley Library there are a number of display cabinets on the ground floor and in the upstairs Local Studies Library where you can see other examples of Stan’s artistry.

The History Society would like to thank Bradford District Museums and Galleries and Bradford Libraries for facilitating these exhibitions, and sends particular thanks to Heather, Gina, Janet and Angela.

Both exhibitions are free to visit from now until early-to-mid September. Please go along and support the exhibitions and these venues.

  1. Could anyone tell me the year that The cottage home was demolished please? And would anyone know of a photo that may exist of three boys ( one who was disabled) from that home please.
    Many thanks for any information.

    1. Hello Eileen. We believe the home operated from 1906 to 1948. I’m afraid we don’t have any photos of the boys who were there.
