A new art gallery and gift shop has opened in Mytholmroyd just in time for the Tour De France.

Situated at the entrance to the village on Burnley Road is the MY Village Gallery and Michelle Campbell Art Studio.

Officially opened last Saturday by Coun Anthony Hodgins, Deputy Mayor of Hebden Royd, the shop stocks art and gifts by mostly Mythomroyd-based people.

At the back of the shop is the studio of Michelle Campbell whose Tour artworks have been popping up in shop front windows throughout Mytholmroyd, Hebden Bridge, Sowerby Bridge and Halifax.

The shop is painted white with red spots to symbolise The King of the Mountains, quite appropriately being close to the start of the longest continuous incline in England up Cragg Vale.

As well as Michelle paintings they also stock artwork by local artists, Francis Charlton, Jaeri Eastwood, Amanda Bell and Janet Warne.

There are also handmade gifts by five local designers, Helen Greenwood, Norma Dean, Hazel Li, Karen Donlan and Nuala Poe.

Councillor Hodgins said it was good to see a new business opening up and will hopefully inspire more local shops starting up selling locally made products.
