Christ Church art project is picture perfect
8:50am Wednesday 21st August 2013 in News
AN ARTIST’S latest work has won rave reviews – even though it’s nowhere near finished.
He set up his easel and rack of pencils in a carefully-chosen spot near the church itself and began working on a preliminary sketch of the much-loved landmark.
It wasn’t long before the approving comments began.
“It was terrific,” said the Cirencester-based artist. “There were lots of interesting comments. People were stopping to take photographs and ask what I was doing, and I was telling them about the community project.
“People in cars were shouting, ‘Well done’.”
The final montage is set to cover about a square metre, and will feature images of about 35 landmarks, ranging from buildings to individual features. Laurie aims to complete the project by the middle of October, when the new community centre is due to be completed.
Further information about the artist and his work can be found at www.laurieplant.com, and regular updates about the community centre and other church news are posted at www.christchurchswindon.
