Sculpture Exhibition 2015    —    1st May till 1st September

Sculpture 2015

Kindly sponsored by   1st Central Insurance

Explore the Sculpture Exhibition that is now in its 16th year, and is a notable celebration of art and sculpture by both established and up and coming artists. During the Exhibition, the Garden is transformed into an outdoor gallery, enabling visitors to enjoy unique works of art by 13 different sculptors.

The bronze, resin, stone, metalwork, ceramics, steel, clay and glass sculptures are sited in strategic positions within this historical Garden setting. This not only offers glorious backdrops including the unique ‘garden rooms’ and Elizabethan House, but entices visitors to appreciate this extraordinary mix of art whilst exploring the unique plant collection that has put Borde Hill Garden on the map.

For the first time, the Sculpture Exhibition extends into the woodland with life size sculptures made from clay and cloth.

Andy James, UK CEO of 1ST CENTRAL said, “We’re thrilled to show our support for this year’s Sculpture Exhibition. The event celebrates some of the best talent in the area and we hope adults and children alike will enjoy these works of art in such a beautiful setting. We’re committed to supporting our local area and we think this is a great way to celebrate the culture that’s right on our doorstep.”  

The Stephenson Clarke family, who have lived at Borde Hill for four generations, commented: “We are delighted to be celebrating another year of sculptures in the Garden. Over the years we have seen such a breadth of talent, and it is a joy to see the beauty of the Garden enhanced by the works of so many credible artists”. 

The Exhibition runs from 1 st May to 1 st September and admission is included in the standard entry price. All works in the exhibition are available for sale.
