Lancashire Life - - Promotion -

only at Hep­ple­stone Fine Art Gallery

Why not come along to Hep­ple­stone Fine Art in He­skin, near Chor­ley, and meet the world fa­mous ‘Frog­man’ on the evening of Thurs­day 19th Sep­tem­ber 2019 be­tween 7pm and 9pm.

Join us for a glass of bub­bly and a fab­u­lously en­ter­tain­ing evening to view and pur­chase the ex­quis­ite range of bronze frogs and birds on dis­play.

A reg­u­lar vis­i­tor to the Hep­ple­stone Gallery, the ‘Frog­man’, Tim Cot­ter­ill has be­come the big­gest sell­ing bronze artist in the world to­day with his el­e­gant, stylised, whim­si­cal bronze frogs and his pas­sion­ate col­lec­tors span the globe.

Born in Le­ices­ter in

1950, he left school

at the age of 15 and be­gan a 6 year en­gi­neer­ing ap­pren­tice­ship be­fore mov­ing onto land­scape design / con­struc­tion and stone ma­sonry. In­trigued with met­al­work­ing, his in­ter­est cul­mi­nated in the design of welded steel an­i­mals and birds dur­ing the 1970’s and led him to a new life in Cal­i­for­nia.

Emi­grat­ing to Venice Beach Cal­i­for­nia in 1990 he started de­sign­ing his now fa­mous bronze frogs which were well re­ceived through pri­vate com­mis­sions, ex­hi­bi­tions, gal­leries and Sotheby’s world renowned auc­tion house in Lon­don. Now years later and proudly an Amer­i­can cit­i­zen, Tim re­sides

in ‘Par­adise’, his own funky struc­ture in an in­dus­trial area of Venice Beach, Cal­i­for­nia, USA. Tim will be vis­it­ing the Lan­cashire gallery on 19th

Sep­tem­ber to show­case his lat­est amaz­ing sculp­tures and en­grave any pieces pur­chased on the evening.

Es­pe­cially for the ex­hi­bi­tion, the award win­ning gallery have been given the great hon­our of com­mis­sion­ing a very spe­cial ex­clu­sive sculp­ture and fol­low­ing last years’ sell out ex­clu­sive, this years’ spe­cial re­lease will be the won­der­ful bronze owl, Cle­men­tine.

Hand fin­ished in an in­cred­i­ble white patina with del­i­cate black vein­ing, this amaz­ing piece will be cast in a world­wide edi­tion of only 20. Al­ready much sought af­ter, we strongly urge any­one in­ter­ested to place a pre event or­der to avoid dis­ap­point­ment due to their ex­tremely lim­ited

availabili­ty.
