So excited to be painting a Gromit sculpture for this year's Gromit Unleashed 2 sculpture trail in my home city of Bristol, UK! The design is top-secret for now, but watch this space for more info :) No doubt the trail will be as successful and exciting as previous trails and should have lots of people flocking to Bristol to see the sculptures. Here comes summer!
Pleased to say that nearly £20,000 was raised for charity when the Henson pigs went up for auction on 25 September at Highnam Court, Gloucester.
Proceeds will be split between the Pied Piper Appeal, Gloucestershire Arthritis Trust and Theatre Gloucestershire.
Varnished and ready to go...
After several weekends of painting, PIG-e is finished and ready to hit the streets of Gloucester for this year's Henson Pig Trail. He will be spending his summer in King Square. Can't wait to see him out there on his grassy plinth!
Finally have everything prepared and set up for this weekend's art trail.
I'll be displaying, along with 3 other artists, and will be selling limited edition prints, giclee prints, funky Xmas cards and some scaled down versions of my cocktail prints .... also in cards. Our great hosts for the weekend are the lovely Matt and Celilia Cand :) Matt will be spinning some vinyl throughout the day and later on, when it gets dark, he'll be doing some outside photo projections. All this will be happening today and tomorrow from 12 noon to 6 pm.
It's less than a month now until the art trail! Better start preparing .....
This year I'll be displaying at 1 Stevens Crescent, Totterdown, along with some other artists.
The Front Room Arts Trail regularly attracts around 180 artists including dancers, musicians, singers, crafts people, fine artists, dramatists and even exciting local pop-up chefs. This all takes place in 60 different Front Rooms, street corners open spaces, pubs, cafes, church halls, cemeteries and shops across Totterdown.
