Contemporary Sculpture at Play – 26 May to 8 September 2019
We were proud to be invited to install a group of ceramics at Rococo Garden, Painswick as part of Art Unbound – Contemporary Sculpture at Play.
Taking inspiration from the playful intentions of the garden’s designers back in the 1740s, Art Unbound is an ambitious exhibition of contemporary outdoor sculpture, that intrigues, entices and delights. Curator Anna Greenacre has selected an exciting group of contemporary sculptors whose work is wonderfully diverse. The scale and medium of the work varies, with playful and evocative pieces that will appeal to the imagination of all ages.
“Sculpture is a natural partner to gardens and landscape. With its long vistas, eclectic follies, secret spaces, formal avenues and wild areas, the playful Rococo Garden is the perfect setting for this exhibition” says Anna. “This garden of imagination will encourage visitors to pause and contemplate both the sculpture and their surroundings. Art Unbound will embrace the natural and creative energy of the rococo period and connect people to both art and the environment. There will be craftsmanship, beauty and playfulness in abundance.”
The exhibition runs from 26th May – 8th September 2019 and is open daily from 10.30am – 5pm (last admission at 4.30pm).
‘Shepherd’ was purchased by a private collector, and is now sited in their garden.
