Art Exhibition Explores Life of Harland & Wolff Docker

#[email protected] - Titanic Belfast will be of special interest to anyone with family connections to Harland and Wolff Shipyard as there is a solo art exhibition underway.

Entitled 'Queen's Island, the ships and the people', it features around 50 paintings done by local artist Eddie Millar and runs (in the iconic visitor attraction's) Andrews Gallery until May 10.

Eddie explained that all of the work featured has been done in the last three years.

"Most of my family have worked in the Shipyard at some stage. My father worked there for 36 years and my brother for a similar length of time.

For more The Belfast Telegraph features the exhibition along with a video report (click HERE) taken from the exhibition.
