HALESOWEN artist Andy Hackett has been lighting up the Cornbow Hall this month with an exhibition of his work.

And the artist is hoping to entice more visitors to view his work as the venue only gets busy when a function is taking place.

The 55-year-old artist is displaying original pieces of photo-realistic artwork until the end of September.

Andy’s work has featured in the town previously, mainly in the display cabinet which used to be outside Halesowen Library

His artwork has been rendered in a variety of artistic media, including pastel, coloured pencil and ink – which are all available to be purchased.

Andy is planning to add more of his work as the month progresses and is also available for commissions.
