You all enjoyed the glimpse that I gave you of something very special on Friday that I have put everything else on hold for now to give you the full effect over the next two days - well today and tomorrow.
The pieces that I shared with you had all been created for something called the Thames Path Together Community Art Project which is being held on the Whitchurch on Thames bridge from 29 April to 14 May this year. Whitchurch Bridge is the toll bridge in Pangbourne, Berkshire if you happen to know the area.
First of all, some background which will add to some of the pieces you will see, this is where the writer Kenneth Grahame got his inspiration for the wonderful book Wind in the Willows. Grahame lived in Pangbourne and if you know the story you can really see the setting for Ratty and Mole and the other animals in the first few photos which I took standing on the bridge.
If you want to know more about the project you can find out about it here.
Rather than bore you too much about the bridge and the area and so on, I will just let you look at the wonderful artworks!
This post shows all the items that were on the handrail part of the bridge, the side panels of the bridge were covered in various other artworks in the form of banners and pictures and I will share those tomorrow.
I hope you enjoy seeing it all and if you are in the area over the next week I thoroughly recommend going for a look!
Hope you enjoyed it! Part 2 tomorrow!
