This year our exhibition, ‘Sculpture in a Landscape 1969 – 2020’, has a rather different focus from our previous shows. In 1969 the same property was one of the first private gardens in the country to be used for showing contemporary sculpture. That exhibition was organised by sculptor Roger Leigh and his wife Pat. It featured 18 sculptors many of them with reputations that survive to this day. They included Hubert Dalwood, Denis Mitchell, Henry Moore, William Pye and Austin Wright. The Wiltshire archives hold many of the papers about this exhibition and visitors to the exhibition will be able to get an insight into that event. Work by several of the 1969 artists will also be on show.
The following profiles describe the background of over 30 of today’s sculptors and illustrates one of the works they hope to show with us. In addition other artists will have work in our popup shop for immediate sale. Almost all of the sculptors taking part have shown with us at one of our previous exhibitions. We are delighted to also feature the work of a small number of recent graduates who are showing work in an exhibition for the first time.
‘Sculpture in a Landscape’ takes place at West Leaze, Ogbourne Rd, Aldbourne from 3rd – 27th September. We are open every day from 11am -6pm excepting on Mondays and Tuesdays when we will be closed. Entry is £7.50 per adult including a catalogue, accompanied under 18’s free. There will be a popup café serving light refreshments.
