Talented local artist Christian Turner, aged 24 from Sandbach, has produced a 2019 calendar featuring images of Nantwich.
It’s the artist’s first calendar of Nantwich, and features his oil paintings of scenes within the town.
Included are: the Battle of Nantwich, St Mary’s Church, Churche’s Mansion, Pillory Street, The Cocoa Yard, The Bowling Green, Nantwich Aqueduct, The Crown Hotel, Sweetbriar Hall, Red Cow, Welsh Row and Christmas in Nantwich.
The calendar can be purchased in Nantwich from the Nantwich Bookshop and Coffee Lounge (High Street), Special Cards (Market St), Inside Paradise (Oat Market), Magpie Cards (Cocoa Yard), Nantwich Museum (Pillory Street) and also online via www.christianturnerart.com priced at £9.99.
10% of all sales will go to Cheshire Arts for Health – a charitable organisation using the arts to improve mental health and wellbeing.
Christian said: “The Nantwich 2019 calendar would make an ideal Christmas gift for friends and family at home and far away.”
Christian, who has autism, has also painted birds, marine life and geometric patterns. He has been drawing since he was a child and studied A Level art at Sandbach School.

Christian also has a small art studio upstairs in Sandbach Art Room (High Street).
