Together the artworks form a trail that has been created with the St Oswald's Hospice charity. At the conclusion of the trail's life the artworks will be auctioned off with the proceeds going to St Oswald's Hospice.
Great North Snowdogs

The Great North Snowdogs were a temporary public art trail in North East England during autumn 2016. 61 snowdog sculptures, each painted individually and sponsored by local businesses, were on public display, mostly within Tyne & Wear. After the end of the exhibition, the sculptures were auctioned with the proceeds going to St. Oswald's Hospice, a charity providing care and support to people with serious or terminal illness.
