ARTWORK is helping to transform a town centre into an open-air gallery.

Large-scale paintings from famous artists and amateurs alike are springing up at pubs, shops and council buildings in Rotherham.

The latest addition to the Gallery Town project - a print of Georges Seurat’s Bathers at Asniers - is now on display on High Street.

A reproduction of a pencil crayon portrait from Rotherham artist Rachael Caddy, called For Mum, has also been unveiled.

It is hoped there will be around 90 pieces of art in the Gallery Town collection.

Nick Cragg, who is spearheading the project, described it as ‘exciting’.
