Retailer commissions Chesterfield artworks
Chesterfield based independent retailer, H&F has teamed up with a number of artists to produce unique artworks of the town.
Louise Peel, Owner of H&F said: “We thought it would be a great idea to produce some artwork to represent Chesterfield in an interesting way. We spoke to two local artists to discuss ideas and landmarks of the town and surrounding area.”
Pete Spowage, a Nottingham based artist, who visits the town’s fleas market every Thursday, has created vibrant canvas pieces using oil, which capture the heart of the town, including Market Square and the Crooked Spire.
Andy Slater, Freelance Illustrator at Reyt Good Illustration has created a number of detailed pencil drawings of the towns landmarks, including Market Square, the Crooked Spire and George Stephenson.
Louise added:”We have had lots of great comments regarding the artwork and it is lovely to explain them to the many tourists that pass through the shop when on daily coach trips. Many of which are from overseas. Recently we had two paintings purchased to send over to our twin town Darmstadt as a gift.”
The artworks are available to purchase from H&F which is located on New Beetwell Street in Chesterfield next to the coach station.
