Sculpture Al Fresco II
1st June - 31st August 2012
We're delighted to present Sculpture Al Fresco II, our second sculpture exhibition, which this year will be held our gardens and the Main House. We're pleased to have the opportunity to showcase the work of fifteen talented sculptors.
This show, focussing on recent contemporary sculpture by fifteen international artists, represents a unique view of the development of contemporary sculpture today. Sculpture Al Fresco II takes a fresh approach, placing 25 sculptural works made over the last few years against the backdrop of a 450 year old stately home and one of the finest Arts and Crafts gardens in all of Europe. The landmark sculptures on display will range from the five metre tall thrust of red knotted stainless steel by Julian Wild sited in the grassed amphitheatre at the back of the gardens to the bronze interlocking chairs cast from human skeletons by Steven Gregory (artist mentor to Damien Hirst) placed in the Anne Boleyn Room inside the historic house.
Visitors will be invited to wander throughout the house and gardens in order to discover these sculptural masterpieces.
The sculptures are available to view daily from 10am - 6pm. Download a map of the sculptures below.
