BICYCLE ART AT HOMETOWN: SUZANNE ALLEN

Suzanne Allen artwork

Suzanne Allen - artist - at Hometown BicyclesSue is a wellspring of information, and her art tells the stories that she’s collected over years of professorship and research. What we especially love about her work is that it’s VIBRANT and playful, while still appealing to the intellectual cyclist. But even if pondering isn’t your thing, we encourage you to enjoy a refreshing smile in front of the jaunty, neon head of “Bike Face”!

BICYCLE ART AT HOMETOWN: PEGGY KERWAN

Peggy Kerwan's art at Hometown Bicycles
(Artwork copyright Peggy Kerwan. All rights reserved.)
Peggy Kerwan artwork "Pink Ladies"Peggy GETS cycling; she’s a cyclist who finds the fun in any bike-bound adventure. And her artwork is about those adventures – the people, the places, and the roadkill rat (yes, you read that right!) that turn a ride into something worth capturing on canvas. You may have seen some of Peggy’s work at the Wooden Spoon in Brighton, where she curates. We’re delighted to have her creativity here at the shop!
