A new painting has gone on display at Cotswold District Council after being auctioned to raise money for a community radio station. Laurie Plant’s artwork, which focuses on shapes inspired by the local community, is now on permanent public display in the Council Chamber.
Laurie is one of four Creatives in Residence who were appointed by Corinium Radio after they received the Creative Champions Award from Cirencester Chamber of Commerce, recognising the support that the radio station gives to the creative industries.
Laurie tried to find ‘…a new way of seeing shapes in the age-old architecture of local churches…’ to form the basis for his work of art entitled ‘Parish’.
The painting was auctioned to raise funds for Corinium Radio, and the buyer wished for it to be on public display.
