THE MILLENNIUM CHALLENGE BACKGROUND
Highcliffe Art Fellowship was approached by the ‘Millennium Project’ team who are creating an illustrated history of Highcliffe which is on display at Highcliffe Castle. The project team needed two more paintings and asked if we could help. They specified paintings of ‘Smugglers in Chewton Bunny’ and ‘The Cat & Fiddle Pub’.
This was set as a challenge for our members and 11 artists submitted a total of 18 paintings, 9 of each subject. The full membership was then asked to vote for their favourite painting in each category and the winning two paintings and artist are shown above. These two paintings will now be framed and hung permanently with the gallery in Highcliffe Castle.
The remaining 16 paintings with artist names can be seen by clicking the link ‘Millennium Challenge Gallery’ on the left-hand side.
