Sculpture 2017

Borde Hill’s historic garden will be transformed into an outdoor gallery, providing the perfect backdrop for the 18th annual Sculpture Exhibition.

Opening on the 12th May, the exhibition will bring the Garden to life, showcasing works by established and up-and-coming artists from across the South of England.

Visitors will discover an extraordinary mix of figurative and abstract art in bronze, resin, stone, metalwork and ceramic, with a number of pieces commissioned especially to celebrate the 21st Anniversary of Borde Hill’s Rose Garden.

The sculptures will be strategically placed to compliment the renowned plant collection, encouraging visitors to explore what Country Life has described as ‘One of the country’s truly great gardens’.

The exhibition will run daily from 12th May to 2nd October 2017, with admission included in the standard entry price.  Families will be encouraged to explore the exhibition with our popular Kids Sculpture Trail.

All pieces are available to purchase.
