Sculpture in a Landscape 1969 – 2020
In 1969, against the backdrop of a modernist architectural home in Wiltshire, a major exhibition of sculpture took place. It was one of the first exhibitions of contemporary sculpture exhibitions held in a private garden in this country. The layout of the landscape in the garden is relatively unchanged and we are delighted to be holding an exhibition there again. This year it will feature work by over thirty of today’s sculptors from across England and Wales as well as the work of a small number of those who were here in 1969.
This late summer event takes place at West Leaze, Ogbourne Rd, Aldbourne, Wiltshire SN8 2LD.
It will be open from 3rd – 27th September, 11am – 6pm every day except Mondays and Tuesdays. There will be a popup café run by village charities serving light refreshments. Entry is £7.50 including a catalogue. Accompanied under 18’s free. Only assistance dogs are allowed Wheelchair access is limited.
Tickets must be pre booked online. CLICK HERE to book.
About Friends of the Garden
The Friends of the Garden is an unincorporated voluntary organisation managed by a network of volunteers all of whom share a love of contemporary sculpture. Their aims are …
These aims are made possible through their collaborations with generous garden owners. By staging these exhibitions in wonderful garden settings they have enabled thousands of visitors to see, touch and respond to sculpture in a way that is only possible outside the confined space of a gallery.
To date they have held six exhibitions; at Urchfont Manor in 2007, 2009 and most recently in 2018, at Avebury Manor in 2009 and at West Lavington Manor in 2014 and 2016.
