Artwork raises funds for community project

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.

    Looking for provenance on a piece we think you did in 1988. A watercolour small in size,roughly only 5inches by 12inches of what appears to be an English cavalier in a mahogany frame. Would we be correct? Signed bottom right “plant” signature is up and down or higgilty piggilty with the “t” nearly on top of the “n” on the name signed. If so could you tell me what you would value same as please.many thanks, Norrie Gibson.
