Hestercombe Gallery presents 'Open-Up', a brand new series of outdoor artworks commissioned in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

About

Open-Up features eight artists with intimate knowledge of Hestercombe, many of whom have responded to the landscapes on the estate in the past. The works, distributed across all three of the period gardens at Hestercombe and beyond, range from subtle interventions involving copper plant tags, pigeon rings and galvanised nails, to bold stacked colours, giant bunting and orchard ladders. All artwork will be installed and opened at different times during August and the beginning of September.

Artists featured include Richard Long, Sarah Bennett, Megan Calver with Gabrielle Hoad, Jon England, Jo Lathwood, Philippa Lawrence and Lucy Soni.

Richard Long’s Jackdaw Line along with other artworks in the Open-Up series can be seen at Hestercombe from Wednesday to Sunday each week, 10am – 6pm (last entry 3.30pm). At the time of publication, all visits must be pre-booked online by 5pm on the day before you wish to travel, via hestercombe.com
