Castle Galleries and the Elephant Parade 2010

    During May, June and July, six life-size baby elephant sculptures painted by Washington Green artists will be on display in and around London as part of the Elephant Parade 2010 - the capital's biggest public art event.

  The Parade is the brainchild of the Elephant Family - a charity working to conserve the endangered Asian elephant - and will feature over 200 brightly painted elephants by over 200 artists. Its aim is to raise vital fuinds, as well as awareness of the elephants' plight, whilst showcasing fantastic art to an estimated audience of 25 million people.

  Louise Dear, Peter Smith, Jeff Rowland, Paul Kenton, Alexander Millar and John D Wilson will each have an elephant on display painted in their own inimitable style, set on a plinth and displaying their name. To round off the event, there will be a grand auction of all elephants, and miniature replicas of some of the orginal designe will beon sale.

All of our artists elephants are on sale at auction right now. To check out their progress you can visit them online at
