Gordon Clegg

Gordon Cl;egg - local Stalybridge artist
The Artist

Gordon was born in Stalybridge
on 4th October 1947 and has lived in the town ever since. He
was educated at West Hill Secondary Modern School and was taught
by the talented water colourist Owen Traynor.

His latest exhibition of artwork, “Icon
Art” , is a collection of original works of art featuring
several highly detailed iconic figures from the world of music,
television, sport and politics.

Gordon, is inspired by the works of art of
David Oxterby, and by the fine detail and craftsmanship of the
Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood painters, Sir Edward Burne-Jones
and Dante Gabriel Rossetti.

He has recently exhibited over 25 years of
his work at the Astley Cheetham Gallery in Stalybridge in an
exhibition entitled “Hollywood and Rock and Roll”.

Of his work, Gordon says:

“The work in the gallery is
my interpretation of the many people that have influenced
me over the years; I hope you will enjoy looking at them as
much as I have in drawing them.”

Although trained as an engineer, (he repairs
washing machines), Gordon confesses that it is to his art that
he returns every evening to his first love – his artwork.

He has also exhibited at the People’s Gallery
in Stalybridge, the Hare & Hounds Pub and in the Prestige
Bar in Stalybridge.
