It’s always great to welcome a new sponsor to the flock, particularly when they are a business who are new to our art trails and to working with St Oswald’s Hospice.
Our most recent Shaun sculpture sponsor is the Hancock Gallery, located on the centre of Newcastle, not far from the Civic Centre, which will be our trail HQ venue.
We recently visited the gallery to meet the team and introduce them to Shaun who very much enjoyed his foray into fine art. As this is an art trail, we are so excited to have a gallery on board and we know they have some really interesting plans for how their Shaun will look.
Chris Morgan, Hancock Gallery Manager said:
“Hancock Gallery are thrilled to be supporting St Oswald’s Hospice this year by sponsoring a Shaun the Sheep sculpture. We are passionate about making art attainable and enjoyable to everyone, with the art trail being the perfect opportunity to highlight how fun and exciting art can really be.”
“We invite all participants to join us for a summer of mischief! Hancock Gallery provides a bright, welcoming environment for people to discover an array of celebrated artists, from those with an international presence, to artists born and bred right here in the North East.
“The staff at St Oswald’s Hospice are superheroes and we are so pleased to be able to support in raising funds for the invaluable work they do across the North East.”
Welcome to Chris and his team, we can’t wait for you and Shaun to start your perfect partnersheep together!
