Applications are invited from emerging/early career sculptors based in or connected to the South West of England.

Submissions are free and open to all. It is a selling exhibition. Please submit photographs of your work or details of proposed work including dimensions and weight if possible.

The theme this year is ‘connectivity’.

Connectivity may be interpreted in terms of materials, form, growth, and especially potential energy. It can apply to the body (internal to external); to place; to others; or, paradoxically, between materiality and the void. Connectivity implies affinity, openness, both being receptive to, and actively seeking, relatedness.

COVID rules permitting an open day will be held on 28th or 29th January 2022, for sculptors to visit and better understand the site. Please advise us, by email, if you would like to attend.

Our 2022 selectors are ceramicist Sandy Brown, arts author and academic Penny Florence and Stone Lane trustee Sandy Lipo.
