- World Animal Day – Our Love of Animals and their Impact on Art
October 4th is World Animal Day. It dates as far back as 1925 when Heinrich Zimmermann organised the first celebration in Berlin, the mission of which is to unite the animal welfare movement and raise standards around the globe, giving a voice to those who can't speak for themselves....The date was specifically chosen as it is the feast day of Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals, beloved among Catholics and recognised for his remarkable way with animals and all living things....All around the world, animals have a strong impact on culture, and this is especially so in art. The treatment of the animal kingdom has long been raised through the arts.
- Meet the Artist – Sophie Louise White
Hampshire based wildlife sculptor Sophie always believed as a child that her love of the natural world would be expressed in her eventual career.
She manipulates her materials to create elegant and aesthetically balanced works, which give away her astute eye for animal anatomy and forms that function. Such can be seen in dynamic pieces like Boxing Hares, and Heron.
- Create a ‘Relaxing Retreat’ in your Own Garden
If this Summer's flower shows, like the RHS Flower Festival at Hampton Court Palace last month, have inspired you to get green fingered, why not go a step further and create your own little piece of paradise in your own back yard?
A well placed sculpture can create an air of intrigue and romanticism in an outdoor space - complementing your planting and inviting you and guests to spend more time in the outdoors.
