Vote on hangings

ROTHERHAM folk have voted on which artwork they would like to see where, in the town centre.

This ‘refreshing’ of the Gallery Town project is prior to the next phase of artwork being launched in the colourful outdoor display.

The results of the vote on the Gallery Town facebook page or by ballot paper are not yet known, but will ensure local people have their choice paintings displayed in the most prominent places.

The most popular of five famous artwork pieces will get the top spot in the town centre to be admired by shoppers on a daily basis.

Next month the 2012 Gallery Town art trail will be launched, and this summer it will take on the themes of holidays, travel and water. Artwork by talented local artists and the borough’s schoolkids will feature alongside reproductions by world-renowned painters.

Gallery Town itself was launched for the first time last September, when 60 varied artworks were hung at strategic points all around the town.
