Great support for local artists this week, as another commission was finished and sold at The People’s Gallery, this time by resident artist Gordon Clegg. Gordon’s bespoke landscape (the painting is looking across the hills from Hobson Moor Road.) will be one of a series commissioned of the local scenery. If you are interested in artwork by Gordon please call the gallery.
In addition, if you would like to commission any of our artists to create a painting for you, please see the links page and inquire by email or pop in for a quote.
