Stone Lane Garden Sculpture

Annual Sculpture Exhibition and Ashburner Prize

1st June – 31st Oct 2021

Selection for the 2021 exhibition is now complete

We attracted a wide range of submissions from emerging artists of all ages based in or connected to the South West.

It promises to be a fascinating show of original contemporary work.

The Ashburner prize winner will be chosen once all the work is installed. The 2021 selection panel is led by artist and Royal Academician Peter Randall-Page and Lara Goodman, contemporary art curator at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum in Exeter.

The 2021 exhibition is entitled regeneration, reflecting life beyond COVID19 and celebrating the start of planting in the ‘new arboretum’ area. 

The exhibition opens on 1st June and runs until 31st October.

In addition a small number of our past exhibitors will be showing work available to purchase alongside our new tea room lawn.

An important showcase for West Country artists, the annual exhibition is held in the summer months within Stone Lane Garden’s beautifully landscaped National Collections of Birch and Alder trees. Groves of trees, pools and streams create a magical exhibition setting loved by visitors of all ages.
