New McKee Micro Gallery Launched at Fox Valley

13 May 2019

A stunning new micro-gallery showcasing the work of Sheffield’s famous artist Pete McKee has been unveiled at Sandersons Department store at Fox Valley in north Sheffield.

Pete’s work has been featured in Sandersons for the last two years but the gallery area has now been given a fabulous McKee makeover and stocks a new range of prints and merchandise to purchase.

A timeline of Pete’s life and career has been installed as well as a display of some of the best loved McKee prints as well as three iconic installation which reflect the Sheffield artist’s unique style and colour scheme.

The gallery area also includes various items such as mugs, baby grows and tea towels for shoppers to buy as well as prints. The gallery will be launched with a special in store event at the end of June which the store team are planning.

Lisa Fox, manager of Sandersons said: “Our McKee Micro Gallery is definitely one of the very special things about about Sandersons and we know our shoppers love Pete’s work as much as we do.

“The new area looks fantastic and we’ve had some lovely feedback from our customers already, we’ll be updating everyone on the plans for our in store event with Pete in the next couple of weeks.”

Pete McKee’s artwork can also be spotted in other parts of Fox Valley. He designed the Grandad Fox statue by the entrance to the centre as well as the Samuel Fox figure by the Manchester Road entrance and the striking mural tribute to the men and women of the steelworks on the gable end at Sandersons.
