Newbury's historic Shaw House transforms into sculpture park
The Orangery Lawn at historic Shaw House, has been transformed into a stunning sculpture park, with artworks by acclaimed sculptors from all over the UK. It opened this morning (Saturday, May 29).
Curated by Newbury artist Jim Crockatt, who has gathered some 60 works from 30 sculptors, it's a great chance to see and even purchase a creative mixture of traditional, modern and cutting-edge contemporary work, and will be open from 11am – 4pm, seven days a week until June 27. Entry is free.
A catalogue and price list can be viewed online and there is also a map of the site showing the location of every piece.
Last September, 3000 visitors enjoying the works in the sunshine, happy to be released from the confines of lockdown. You can see a panoramic view of the exhibition on youtube or visit diem photography to view some infra-red black and white photographs of the exhibition, by Newbury photographer David Hatfull.
