A debut photographic exhibition Hinckley on Canvas by Hinckley resident and photographer John Coward is to be held at the Atkins Gallery from Monday 16 March – Friday 20 March.
The display of 33 canvasses captures the town throughout the seasons and features local landmarks such as St Mary’s Church, Argents Mead War Memorial and Hollycroft Park and many more. A range of large photographs of the town will also be on display.
Keen photographer John Coward, who is the Assistant Town Centre Manager for Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council said “Hinckley on Canvas is a celebration of the town that I live in and love. I have been posting my photographs of Hinckley on a number of community social media sites for a couple of years which have been getting a really positive reaction. This has motivated me to take my hobby one step further and hold this first exhibition of my works. All of my photographs are taken on mobile phone, which I hope will encourage others to appreciate that expensive cameras are not required.”

Atkins Gallery is open Monday to Friday 8:30 to 5.30pm with free entry. For more information please telephone 01455 247070.
