Artist Corner – The Art Hound – Richard Johnston

The loyal Art Hound patiently holds his Master’s brush in the studio…or that’s the story anyway! This is my painted contribution to Haslemere Hounds charity event this year where local businesses are invited to get these fibreglass hounds painted, decorated and then auctioned off for charity. I adapted the fibreglass hound slightly, so he could be holding the brush in his mouth. Appropriately, he is sitting outside the Art Shop!

Haslemere Hounds 2019, is the successor to Haslemere Hares, the highly successful Community Arts project that took place in the summer of 2018, and Haslemere Hogs in 2017.

Although NOT specifically intended as a ‘Fundraising excercise’, more than £85,000 has been raised so far for a variety of Local and National good causes.

Richards take on the Haslemere Hound – The Art Hound

The project is using local Artists and Schools to decorate more than 100 fibreglass Hounds that will be displayed throughout the area from May ’til September 2019.
