Sculpture Exhibition 2017
May 12 – Oct 2 all-day

L-R: ‘Blue’ by Dot Kuzniar, ‘Grace’ by Juliet Scott, ‘Mr & Mrs’ by Rosalind Read, ‘Achilles Heel’ by Jordi Raga, ‘Frances with a Butterfly’ by Antoinette Jackson

Borde Hill’s historic garden has been transformed into an outdoor gallery. Opened on 11th May by local, international best-selling crime writer Peter James, together with a host of other celebrities and local dignatories, the Garden provides the perfect backdrop for the 18th annual Sculpture Exhibition.

Rose Bud by Will Spankie

There are over 80 works in a variety of styles to suit a range of tastes, all at different prices to accommodate the smallest or largest wallet. From the bronze and resin dark stately figure of ‘Grace’ by Juliet Scott, gliding across the south lawn of the Elizabethan Mansion to a rust coloured ‘Herd of Deer’ in a suitable clearing and the fun shiney metal and wood ‘Flight of the Avocets’ by Simon Hempsell ‘flying’ out over an Area of  Outstanding Natural Beauty, the sculptures also take the viewer deeper into the landscape.

The placement of the art is key , highlighting even the most hidden away areas of Borde Hill Garden such as the Old Potting Sheds where decorative ceramic pieces including ‘Night Tide’ by Nicola Crocker rest naturally upon a gravel surface.  And this year three stunning but vastly different pieces in Jay Robin’s Rose Garden have been especially commissioned in celebration of it’s 21st anniversary  in June – ‘Rose Bud’, by Will Spankie, ‘Bud for Borde Hill’ by Rob Leighton and ‘Jubilee’ by Dot Kuzniar.

The composition of the pieces all over the Garden are varied – as well as Bronze, Metal and Wood, there is artwork formed from Stone, Resin, Ceramic, Iron Resin, Cast Marble, Cast Pewter and Marble Resin, with several smaller pieces on display in the Green Tree Gallery.

Peter James, a keen artwork collector himself, who opened the exhibition said, “I was delighted to have been asked to open Borde Hill’s 18th Annual Sculpture Exhibition, as I’ve long collected art and believe strongly in supporting new and up and coming artists, particularly those who are local.”

Tom Acott from sponsors 1st CENTRAL said “We are very pleased to be sponsoring the Sculpture Exhibition at Borde Hill’s beautiful Garden for the 3rd year, helping support both local artists and those from further away”.

The Sculpture Exhibition, showcasing over 80 works by both established and up-and-coming artists runs daily from 12th May – 2nd October 2017, with admission included in the standard entry price.

All pieces are available to purchase.
