An LS Lowry painting and experimental digital artwork are part of an exhibition marking the 50th anniversary of the University of Salford.

What's In Store? at Salford Museum and Art Gallery also features works by Bridget Riley, Patrick Caulfield and Lowry's mentor Adolphe Valette.

The university said art by rising stars including Rachel Maclean, Cao Fei and Mishka Henner would also be on show.

It is the first time its full art collection has gone on public display.

The exhibition includes The Narcia Fitting Out At The Tyne (1968) by Lowry, who was born in Stretford.




Lindsay Taylor, University of Salford art curator, said: "It is a celebration of the rich artistic history which exists here in Salford, and of the thriving North West contemporary arts scene, which the university... plays an intrinsic role in."
