Photos: Sainsbury’s unveils Wednesfield Art
To mark the huge extension to the store in Wednesfield, Sainsbury’s has commissioned artists Ron Thompson & Julie Edwards of Planet Art to create two huge panels of artwork recognising the heritage of the village.
The two pieces of art contain over 90 panels, each representing a bit of Wednesfield, including St Thomas’ Church, The Battle of Wodensfield, local industry such as trap making and locks, right up to Wednesfield’s London 2012 Olympic Bronze medal winning gymnast, Kristian Thomas.
Ron & Julie are also working on another unrelated project that will see a number of pieces of artwork forming a ‘trail’ between the Bentley Bridge retail complex and Wednesfield High Street – keep an eye out for these pieces later 2013!
