Howard turns 70 this year & offers his fans & supporters from over the years fun ways to raise funds for the Butterworth Gallery's headline charity Archie Foundation. #FINDHOWARD is a collaboration of  different fundraising ideas that are fun for all ages. Howard will be painting 12 new 'en plien air' paintings, in 12 locations throughout Scotland.(Weather permitting!) May - Oct.

Each location has series of clues that are released in the week ahead of his chosen Saturday, these each offer a chance to be the first to find him, take & share a photo to receive the £70 Butterworth Gallery Gift Voucher thats up for grabs. Those familiar with geocaching will be able to claim a bonus point as we have had a bit of fun and turned Howard is a trackable cache for each location." ArtBug" for those geocaching, holds a separate Prize Draw. 

The 5 clues (2 will be close by geocache locations) are readily available through following the gallery on Twitter or liking the Face Book Page, however clues are available by calling the gallery on a Friday 11am- 4pm and the Saturday 11am - Noon.


#FINDHOWARD we hope will be lots of fun for everyone and hopefully raise funds towards the digital art gallery at the Royal Aberdeen Children's Hospital (RACH). There will be a finale exhibition of the 12 images at the Marcliffe Hotel on 28th Oct.  More details on the summers events are to be released soon.
