A few days ago Brian Howard visited us at our Studio/Home to explain his Charity pig scheme for Haslemere.
We really liked the idea, especially as it was supporting the Mayor’s nominated charities and would see lots of public art in Haslemere and surrounding areas.
We agreed to sponsor a pig, paint it and get four other local artists to paint a pig for the launch of the scheme in November. We had no difficulty in persuading four local artists and yesterday a standing and seated pig were delivered to our studio. So now the real work begins to design and paint the pigs.
We would encourage other Chamber members to join in so that we don’t hog all the limelight!
A similar project is live in my home town of Ipswich and the images are of two of their many exhibits.
