Opening for it's 35th annual exhibition, The Hannah Peschar Sculpture Garden is proud to present work by 56 British and European sculptors throughout the landscaped gardens.

About

The Sculpture Garden was the brainchild of owner and curator Hannah Peschar over 30 years ago, and has grown from a handful of sculptures to over 200 pieces exhibited every summer. 

The range of works selected by the curators is wide with styles varying from figurative to highly abstract, innovatively using contemporary metals, wire, glass, ceramics and plastics as well as the more traditional stone, wood and bronze. Each sculpture is placed in a carefully considered and meaningful relationship with the other featured works within the garden, created by co-curator and award-winning landscape designer, Anthony Paul. The result is an inspired combination of peaceful, enclosed harmony and dramatic, surprise vistas in an ever-changing environment.

Changes were afoot in 2015 when owner and curator Hannah Peschar retired: stepping back to allow a new pairing of curators to add their stamp to the Sculpture Garden. Curator Vikki Leedham and Anthony Paul work in partnership to curate each year's exhibition, bringing a new lease of life to the Sculpture Garden.

2018 sees this new life go a step further - with the addition of sculptures suspended from numerous beautiful trees, large figures and towering forms minicking the  treeline. Not shying away from colour; vivid hues seem to glow from beneath the leaf canopy - creating a stong contrast with the infinate shades of green that create the magical gardens.
