The Rutherford Gallery is located in Ashton-under-Lyne, Greater Manchester. The Gallery specialises in work by Harry Rutherford, a nationally renowned artist who came from the Tameside area. His career was long and varied, working initially as a draughtsman and then training with the eminent artist Walter Sickert. The Rutherford Gallery is situated in the Central Art Gallery and is a celebration of a twentieth-century master, an artist whose talent allowed him to experience many avenues of artistic life. The works on display span his entire artistic career. Many have never been on public display before. To accompany the exhibition space there is a dedicated gallery education room which provides opportunities for school and community groups to learn about Rutherford and develop their own artistic skills. The artworks rotate regularly and are part of the Astley Cheetham Art Collection which is managed by Tameside Museums and Galleries Service.
