Grantham artist Terry Shelbourne has lent several paintings to Mayor of Grantham Ian Selby to put on show in the Mayor’s Parlour.
Terry, the Journal’s cartoonist of more than 25 years, painted Walter Richard Parker, Albert Ball and Charles Richard Sharpe (pictured from left), all Victoria Cross recipients from the First World War. Each subject has strong links to Grantham, leading Coun Selby to approach Terry and ask to exhibit his works of art. Coun Selby said: “Yet again Terry has put his brush into action to provide us with some stunning artwork. This current display is dedicated to our WW1 heroes and is in commemoration for all the people in the Grantham area who gave the ultimate sacrifice and to those who fought for the freedom we have today. Visitors are always most welcome to the parlour. Thank you so much to Terry.”
