Art - In Beauty May I Walk2nd August until 7th September - Doddington
After a successful year in 2012, the Midlands’ largest sculpture exhibition is returning to Doddington Hall this summer. This year will see over 300 works displayed, making it one of the biggest exhibitions in the UK, and significantly larger than 2012 when 250 works were displayed. The exhibition will show works by seventy-five sculptors, both national and international, with forty-three new to the exhibition. Curated by David Waghorne, managing director at Sculpture Events Ltd, preparation is underway to display sculptures from exhibitors including Anthony Heywood, David Worthington, Giles Rayner, Mel Fraser and Rachel Ducker. The pieces will follow two trails which will complement the Elizabethan Gardens. Trail 1 will take guests through the Ornamental East Garden – ‘Strength & Power’, the Ornamental West Garden – ‘Colour & Light’ and the Wild Garden – ‘Surprise & Delight’. Trail 2 includes The Great Hall – ‘Banquet’, Granary Courtyard – ‘Movements & Action’, and The Granary – Indoor Exhibition. The Great Hall will include busts by Kathy Dalwood, who recently had her work featured by Louis Vuitton. A mechanical working corkscrew, which is cast in bronze and described as the world’s largest by Davy & Kristin McGuire, along with their ten-metre paper and hologram sculpture, will make its way to the exhibition after its current tour of Japan. Owners of Doddington Hall, James and Claire Birch, are delighted that the exhibition will return this year. “What we noticed in 2012 was that everyone of all ages enjoyed the exhibition and not just those who had an existing interest in art,” explained Claire. “We would see children fascinated, people discussing pieces at great length and lots of keen photographers taking lovely photos. Our gardens were filled with not only art but laughter, surprise, delight and debate. It was an event which would become part of the Hall’s history so we wanted it to return.” The exhibition is open every day from 11am until 4pm and all works are for sale.
