Frog Blog – Tim Cotterill is coming to town!


Welcome to the first instalment of Westover Gallery’s Frog Blog! If you’re hopping-mad for Tim Cotterill’s terrific, handcrafted Frogman Bronze sculptures this is the blog for you. The latest news behind the bronzes: exciting new releases, fun Frogman facts, insider info, interviews and so much more!

Bournemouth’s Westover Gallery is the biggest seller of Tim Cotterill’s wonderful Frogman creations in the United Kingdom. As a Platinum-status seller of Frogman Bronzes, we’ve been providing collectors Tim’s artwork for 15 years. Our Platinum status means we sell some of the finest rare, exclusive and limited edition sculptors all over the World. Which is exactly why we thought our website would be the perfect place to keep you up-to-date on all things froggy!


We’re especially excited this month at the gallery, because it’s that time of year again. That’s right – Frogman Tim Cotterill is coming to town!

Originally born in Leicester, the artist behind Frogman Bronzes is currently based in California. The biggest selling bronze artist in the world makes just one trip to the UK every year to meet fans and collectors. Being an official Frogman Platinum Gallery, Tim has chosen to visit Westover Gallery in Bournemouth twice this year!

Westover Gallery has hosted annual events with Tim in attendance since we began selling Frogman Bronzes all those years ago. Frogman collectors flock to Bournemouth’s beautiful coast to meet Tim, purchase exclusive Show Frogs and get them personally dedicated by the man himself.

We love hosting these events, so we’re thrilled to invite Tim to our beautiful gallery twice this year. After our recent refurbishment, we can’t wait to see what you think of the gallery and its stunning new interior.

Attendees of our previous Frogman events will remember their fun themes. This year, we invite you to our sweetshop to peruse or selection of sweet treats. Little Box of Frogs is the theme of this year’s event, with champagne and desserts being served at Tim’s appearance on Friday 28th September, and a champagne afternoon tea on Sunday 7th October. On either day you’ll be able to choose from the UK’s best selection of bronzes, meet the man behind the work and, of course, have a glass of bubbly.

And speaking of refreshments, if it’s a different tipple you’re after, how about Whisky and Ginger? By which we mean frogs, of course. The two exclusive UK Show Frogs for 2018, Whisky and Ginger, are only available at show galleries - and you can get your hands on both of them right now!

Available together as a matching edition pair of 40 for £1474, or individually, we think Whisky and Ginger are among the best Show Frogs yet. In matching deep, delicious orange patinas, Whisky and Ginger are simply delectable.


The larger of the two Whisky is 11.5" x 8.5" x 7.5" in an edition size of 40. Lounging atop a trowel, admiring the bed of bluebells beside it, at £1195 we think Whisky is simply wonderful.


The delightful little Ginger sits gracefully at 3.75" x 2.75" x 1. 25", and at just £279 is an a steal given its exclusivity. Edition size of 125, this 2018 Show Frog is only available in the United Kingdom.


So if you can’t make it down to meet Tim here at the end of this summer, don’t worry. You won’t be missing out on these two wonderful, and exclusive, UK Show Frogs. And, of course, you’ll find updates on the event, and all other things Frogman, on our Frog Blog.


Interested in the event on Friday 28 Sept, or Sunday 7 Oct? See our event page for more!
