Sculpture artwork put on display


SCULPTURES created by homeless, less privileged and less able people, have been displayed today.

Artwork entered into the Hope Sculpture Competition was exhibited at Pallant House Gallery in Chichester today.

The competition was entered by people who attended workshops at seven charities, including Chichester Assessment and Treatment Service, Central Point, Pallant House Gallery community workshops and MIND.

St Wilfrid’s Hospice and the Apuldrum Centre, who shared a workshop, were named the group winners of the competition.

The individual winner was Foyer Accueil Chartrain, which is a homeless shelter in Chichester’s twin city, Chartres.

Winners were chosen by Marc Steene, of Pallant House Galley.

The French homeless shelter was awarded a cash sum donated by the award’s sponsors; Italian restaurant Mumma Mia and the french antiques company Foxed Grey.

The two sponsors will be allowed to keep the competition’s ‘hope’ sculpture until next year.
