Meet The Artist

November 2013 - looking ahead...

Our chosen artist, Tim Norris has been awarded 
the designing of the artwork commission for Chilton Field.
The first village consultation is to view Tim’s art
 and have a drop-in chat time.
This is for ALL residents from Chilton
on 17 January 2014
between 3.30pm and 8.00pm at the Chilton Village Hall
for afternoon tea - or a glass of wine.

This is your chance to help define the sort of artwork
that you would like to have in Chilton Field.
If you would like to stay informed of 
the progress of the artwork please subscribe to:

November 2012
Chilton Village was promised money for an artwork for Chilton Field.
We began talking about it and set up a steering committee consisting of anyone interested in this project. People were invited to join via the Chronicle or this postcard which was popped through the doors of new residents. People were moving in all the time so Colin the Postman kept us updated as to who should be informed. (If anyone new did not get this it was an oversight!)

By June 2013 the committee had established what we envisaged:
 that the artwork should be:
  • High quality workmanship
  • Interactive
  • A meeting place
  • Encourage socialisation
  • A project that meets the approval of the village
  • Value for money and it should ...

  • Fit in with the landscape
  • Reflect the village history / roots
  • Bring both sides of the village together

August 2013
The project was advertised and  artists responded.

October 2013
Three artists were interviewed.
We are delighted to welcome Tim Norris as our chosen artist.
Please have a look at his website www.timnorris.co.uk to see his portfolio of artworks.

November 2013
We have planned a "Meet the Artist" event at the village hall for 17 January 2014
