This year’s exhibition closed on 31st October 2020. Some work will remain in the garden after this date.
An important showcase for West Country artists, the exhibition is held in the summer months within Stone Lane Gardens (gardens and arboretum open all year) with beautifully landscaped National Collections of Birch and Alder trees. Among groves of trees, pools and streams, individual sculptures can be seen within their own natural ‘frames’. The gardens create a magical setting for the Exhibition which is loved by visitors of all ages. It is an ideal place to bring the family, as children love to discover the sculptures, tucked away around corners, all around the gardens.
The 2020 exhibition was a slightly smaller, more intimate gathering of artwork. The COVID-19 pandemic forced us to cancel the original exhibition: we are especially grateful to the artists who agreed to share their work in this later, quieter way.
Entries for 2021 Sculpture Exhibition and Ashburner Prize are now invited. Please contact us for details.
