‘The Artist’s Garden’ kindly sponsored by 1st CENTRAL
Summer Art Exhibition 1st August – 30th September 2018
Borde Hill Garden has been an inspiration for horticulturalists and artists for generations and this summer we are proud to continue this tradition by displaying the artistic response to the beauty of nature, countryside and gardens.
Opening on 1st August, visitors will be able to explore the historical Garden, renowned for its rare shrubs and champion trees, where they will discover approximately 40 works by established and up-and-coming artists inspired by both flora and fauna.
In addition to an enticing selection of garden sculptures in metal, stone, bronze resin and stained glass, the exhibition, sponsored by local employer, 1st CENTRAL, will also include a number of paintings and smaller works displayed within the Garden shop and Green Tree Gallery. Uniting the work is their common fascination with the beauty of nature, the countryside and the feelings they evoke within us.
Visitors will also be able to see elements of ‘Natural Kinaesthesia’ – an installation by floral design collective La Famille that was presented at this years Chelsea Flower Show. The installation incorporates shade-loving plants suspended within orbs and created especially for Chelsea using foliage, cuttings and greenery taken from Borde Hill Garden.
An exhibition map will be provided with the majority of pieces available to purchase. Included in Garden admission.
This event is part of the ‘Celebration of Art, Creativity and Imagination’ summer programme at Borde Hill.
2019 will see a large-scale Sculpture Exhibition between May – October, celebrating 20 years of Art and Sculpture at Borde Hill Garden.
