WARpaint Fundraiser
Caroline de Peyrecave SWA has set up a project called WARpaint. 
 
Caroline is painting 15 large life size paintings of service men and women that have been injured on operations. Her work shows the subject having moved forward after their injuries and she hopes the paintings will motivate others in similar situations.

I was pleased to attend the unveiling of the Sir Nigel Gresley sculpture by leading Sculptor Hazel Reeves. FRSA SWA.  As President of The Society of Women Artists it was a great honour and pleasure to see one of our leading sculptors tell us something of the story behind her journey of discovery during the process of 'breathing life' into the clay and producing this remarkable bronze sculpture of one of our most eminent engineers.  

Christine Charlesworth SWA has been commissioned to produce a 1.5 metre tall Bronze of ‘Sprint’ by Wing Tai.  This work is to be the main centrepiece ‘running over’ the lawn on the hillside overlooking Hong Kong.   The unveiling will be in April.
