Nantwich artist Tony Denton has opened a new gallery-shop to display and sell his artwork.
‘The Marina Gallery’, a single storey wooden building located next to the Chandlery at Nantwich Canal Centre on Chester Road in Nantwich, was officially opened on Saturday 14th August 2021.
The types of Tony’s artwork currently available in his gallery-shop includes original artwork hand painted onto a variety of mediums which include canvas, slate and solid oak whiskey barrel lids. Prints of these pieces are also available and are customisable.
The Marina Gallery is open every day except for Mondays from 9am-4pm with free parking available.
Tony also has a stall at Nantwich Market on Saturdays.
Tony is well known in Nantwich as over the past several months he has generously donated a ‘Support the NHS’ canvas painting he produced which was auctioned for Mid Cheshire Hospitals Charity, donated paintings of Captain Sir Tom Moore on slate and on wood to the town (both temporarily on display in the Nantwich Bookshop & Coffee Lounge), and donated his painting of the Nantwich Town Football Club crest being painted to the club.
Tony Denton said: “I want to bring affordable and original artwork to the people of my new adopted town. It brings me joy to create and I hope I can spread that joy a little further now I have opened up the gallery.”
