2012 Canal Etchings

Ellesmere Sculpture Initiative's project for 2012 links Ellesmere to Llanymynech and the World Heritage site at Chirk using etched zinc sculptures. The artist, Jason Hinklin, based in Ellesmere, is a well-established artist etcher and expresses his views of the particular landscapes at each of five sites along the canal.

Two of these sculptures are located in Ellesmere.
