Ramster Garden to host Surrey Sculpture Society exhibition this spring
Ramster Garden is hosting a special art exhibition by the Surrey Sculpture Society from 23rd April until 20th May 2021.
The extensive sculpture trail will offer visitors a rare chance to see a collection of inspirational original pieces of sculpture, created by professional and emerging artists, within a magical woodland setting. The sculptures will be staged around the 20-acre garden, adding further drama to the breath-taking show of over 300 rhododendrons, azaleas and camellias which burst into colour throughout spring.
Alison Catchlove, the SSS Exhibition Manager for Ramster Garden 2021 commented: “The Surrey Sculpture Society is thrilled to be exhibiting at Ramster Garden this year. It's so exciting to have a new venue where we can create a completely fresh sculpture trail. We have a fabulous team made up of SSS members who will be organising and designing the exhibition alongside Rosie Glaister of Ramster. The grounds at Ramster are beautiful and we have a fantastic range of sculptures that are going to look amazing there.”
The sculpture trail has been designed by SSS member Carol Orwin, working closely with the Ramster Garden team, to create an exhibition that will show a diverse range of sculptures. They will be strategically positioned throughout the gardens, ranging from modern abstract to more classical styles, using fired earth, metal, glass, stone, wood and bronze - with each piece accompanied by the artist’s statement.
“The sculpture exhibition will add an exciting new element to the garden which is already home to enchanting sculptures and natural carvings which can be discovered as you follow the winding grass paths. It is a perfect setting to balance sculpture with plantings,” enthuses Rosie Glaister, who runs the family-owned garden.
The wide range of sculptures which would form eye-catching focal points in gardens, conservatories and interiors, will be for sale during the event.
