This weeks Sunday Studio is a short one, as I am again not in the studio, but am visiting Shepparton for the weekend. The main purpose of the visit is to see John Perceval’s Angels at the Shepparton Art Museum. I’ll be going there tomorrow -another professional development trip.
So for now I will share the cows of Shepparton!! Shepparton is in the Goulburn Valley famous for growing fruit and the Shepparton Preserving Company (SPC). But prior to fruit the first white settlers grazed diary cattle, so Shepparton have over ninety fibreglass life size cows scattered throughout the town, decorated in various colours and designs.
Called the MooovingArt Cows Project, the cows change locations and design on a regular basis!
Though my partner did not like the cows – “they’re too contemporary” – I thought they were cute and playful, adding a bit of colour and vibrancy to the urban landscape and the parks they are located within. And they certainly catch people’s attention and become talking point.
So, here are a few cows…. enjoy 🙂

The cows are awesome! They would look great being featured on my Sunday “Unique Art” blog sometime. I love their colors and designs.
yes…. they were pretty cool… when I first arrived and saw so many of them I was a bit “what…” , but they certainly add colour and a bit of ooommmph to the landscape!
