Their sculpture trail will be staged in the beautiful two-and-a-half acre Walled Garden of the Guildford estate.
The sculptures, created by members of the society, who range from talented amateurs
to highly acclaimed professional sculptors, will be displayed in the many ‘rooms’ of the award-winning enclosed gardens from Monday July 7 to Monday August 4.
“It is wonderful to be back at Loseley Park after a five year break and to have such a perfect setting for our members to exhibit their works and come together to celebrate our 20th Anniversary,” says Surrey Sculpture Society chair, Sue Cundell.
“This unique and beautiful venue also gives visitors the opportunity to enjoy the combination of art, architecture, history and nature and we hope they will enjoy discovering the range of sculptures we will have on show.”
Visitors to Sculpture Trail at Loseley Park will be able to enjoy the sense of peace and tranquillity of this unique setting as well as potentially buy high quality works of art to the public at very affordable prices.
Loseley Park has been the home of the More-Molyneaux family for over four hundred years and Michael More-Molyneaux commented:
“Sculptures and gardens work extremely well together,” says Michael More-Molyneux, whose family have lived at Loseley Park for over 400 years. “These exhibitions not only show off the sculptures but also help to highlight aspects of the garden. It is always a wonderful eclectic group of works which always appeals to a wide variety of tastes.”
Built in the reign of Elizabeth I, Loseley Park stands in ancient Surrey parkland close to the North Downs and is remarkably unchanged since 1562. Its intricately panelled Great Hall was once part of Henry VIII’s Nonsuch Palace.
