Arthur's Morning, A Penalty And A Pint, and Sun Street

 


In February 2011 three paintings by artist Vicky Mount were installed on an exterior wall at Stoke Market, in South Wolfe Street, opposite the library.

The art focuses on life in the town with images reflecting everyday life - the designs were chosen by library users in a vote.

The three paintings are called Arthur's Morning, A Penalty And A Pint, and Sun Street.

  • The first depicts a man eating his breakfast as his cat looks on, while across the street a man collects his milk.

  • The second shows a Stoke City fan looking up, unaware his dog is helping himself to his pint.

  • The third is based on the town's Sun Street and shows three women having an early moring natter. 

The project has been supported by Staffordshire Housing Association with grant funding secured by Stoke-on-Trent City Council and support from Fenton's Theartbay and installer QPS from Stoke.
