Chelsea Flower Show

We were lucky enough to head down to Chelsea Flower Show last week and meet some of our amazing sculptors and add more to the mix for the future. It also provided a heap of inspiration for our next project, which involves the development of a private garden to show sculpture in an informal garden for private views.

This project is in the early stages but we are very hopeful that it will be fully open for next year, albeit with a lot of development ahead. We will post progress shots over the coming months as the garden develops and we select the sculpture to go on show for 2017.

2015 proved to be the year of sculpture in the gallery, with us finding new homes for more pieces than previous years. The supply has helped no end with top end sculptors asking to exhibit at the gallery and 2016 is the year we will spend more resources on bringing in more contemporary works from around the UK.

Here our a few of our picks for 2016 including a rather special new arrival!

2016 - External Sculpture Garden

We are currently putting together plans for a six month selling show of garden sculpture within a world renowned garden. We are looking for a broad selection of figurative and abstract sculptures in stone, resin, metal and new materials to fill a number of spaces. Part of the show will be a feature weekend where up to 70 sculptures will be placed around the park.

Invitations for artists to apply to have their work featured in both the long and short shows are now open. There are a number of images in this blog showing potential locations through the gardens. Artists are requested to apply via email with three examples of their recent works along with a two paragraph explanation of their heritage and training.
