Salford woman becomes star of art exhibition without even realising!

A woman from Salford has become the focus of a major art exhibition without even realising it. Elizabeth Chapman popped to the shops 50 years ago when she unknowingly posed for a picture with world famous artist LS Lowry.

The photos have just recently been discovered and are now on display in the city:

The images by renowned artist Clive Arrowsmith are on display at The Lowry as part of the exhibition Lowry at Home: Salford 1966 until September.

And the art work of a 6 year old boy will be hung next to Salford painter L.S Lowry's work. Jack Barker, from Cumbria, beat hundreds of other children as part of a competition to have his work exhibited. The work, entitled The Sea, will hang in the Lowry for a year.

The Lowry works with over 500 schools across the North West every year to introduce the world of the arts to young people.
