Posting 500 portraits
Local artist Jill Holder painted 500 portraits of her friend Eric. She then delivered them to 500 addresses in Faversham and asked people to display them. Why?
It seems such a mammoth task just to paint 500 portraits, without hand delivering them all as well. However, for Jill, it was all in aid of art.

This huge effort to get people engaged in art appears to have paid off because hundreds of people have taken up the challenge and her work is now being displayed in windows all over the town. From houses and flats to pubs and shops, her portraits of Eric have become a prominent feature of Faversham.
