An opportunity to acquire a wonderful limited edition artwork and support Cove Park.
We are almost there!
Cove Park has now raised 95% of the £1.4 million required for its new Artist Centre. This building, and two new units of accommodation, will allow us to expand and develop the work we do for both artists and the public.
To enable us to reach our goal we are now asking for the help of individuals: those who have enjoyed a Cove Park residency or who, for other reasons, would like to contribute and make our new Centre a reality. With your help work will begin on site in Spring 2015.
Every summer swallows return to Cove Park from their wintering places in South Africa, setting up home in the eaves of the Centre. The comings and goings of the swallows follow almost exactly the duration of our summer residency programme and this is why we have chosen the swallow as our emblem in these final stages of our fundraising campaign.
Acclaimed ceramicist and former resident Dawn Youll has been commissioned to design and hand cast a unique (and numbered) edition of porcelain Swallows. These beautiful Swallows are now available for sale. All proceeds will go towards the new Centre and will ensure Cove Park can continue to support artists and the development of their work.
‘They are lovely objects. I shall enjoy finding a place for them to fly.’ Diana Sykes, Director, Fife Contemporary Art and Craft
A single porcelain Swallow costs £65.00, a pair of Swallows £150.00. The pair is designed to be displayed together: one has a plain parian porcelain finish, the other a mother-of-pearl finish. The new Centre will feature ‘A Flight of Swallows’, a wall where Dawn will stencil a swallow for each ceramic object purchased; your name will also be printed on this wall in recognition of your gift. For a minimum donation of £20.00 your name will be included on this wall within our new Centre.
To buy your Swallow, or to make a donation, please complete the order form or contact Cove Park directly if you wish to pay by cheque or require information on delivery times.
