Farmer Gow’s Sculpture Trail raises £1,600 for WATSAN

The Sculpture Trail brought together a stunning collection of artworks in the setting of Anne Gow’s family farm near Faringdon. The curator Lendon Scantlebury donated 5% of each sale to WATSAN.

The innovative art exhibition, Sculpture on the Farm, was an installation of nearly 300 works of art, including sculpture and paintings by local artists. Sculptor Scantlebury carefully drew on his long experience as an exhibition organiser to bring together an eclectic mix of artworks, forming a fascinating trail among the animals and landscape of Farmer Gow’s.

Of the artwork sales, 10% of the funds raised were dedicated to supporting WATSAN and Oxford Friends of Hope and Faith School. The exhibition saw 630 visitors, and the proceeds to WATSAN totalled a fantastic £1,600. Once again we would like to thank Anne Gow for giving us this wonderful opportunity and being such an enthusiastic advocate for WATSAN’s work, and Lendon Scantlebury for his generosity.
