Artist due to unveil new work of art for Barrow college

AN international artist has produced a tribute piece to celebrate the transformation of his former college.

LOVE BARROW 2: Celebrated local hero John Duffin loves Barrow. MILTON HAWORTH REF: 0444734

John Duffin was due to return to Furness College today to unveil his painting of the Copper Box, the main building of the institution's £43m campus redevelopment.

After leaving school at 16 Mr Duffin became a draughtsman apprentice at Barrow shipyard. During the early 1980s he studied evening classes in oil painting, and A-Levels in art, English and sociology at the college in Channelside.

Have your say

A wonderfully atmospheric painting, reflecting the ever changing landscape both natural and man-made on our south lakes peninsula.
