On Friday 11th May, local sponsors of the Snowdogs Discover Ashford Trail gathered for an exciting gala night at Revelation Ashford to choose their Snowdog designs.
Snowdogs Discover Ashford, a Wild in Art event delivered by Ashford Borough Council and Pilgrims Hospices, is a large scale public art trail of 35 Snowdog sculptures which will be placed around the borough from September to November this year and are themed on the Raymond Briggs classic, The Snowman and The Snowdog™.
Each Snowdog has been individually designed by local and regional artists, and sponsored by Kent-based businesses including town centre businesses County Square Shopping Centre, Ashford Leisure Trust, Ashford College & Kentish Express, to name a few!
Once finalised, the chosen artists will then start applying their designs to the blank Snowdogs from the 1st June. Throughout this process, County Square Shopping Centre will be hosting an Artist Painting Kennel in one of the shop units on the ground floor near Debenhams, creating a buzzing hive of activity where shoppers can see the designs come to life.
