Sculpture in the Gardens

posted in: Outdoors, Photography | 5

Yesterday I finally managed to get to Doddington Hall for the Sculpture in the Gardens exhibition. Thankfully it had been extended for a week which meant I had opportunity to go.

It really was a great setting for the 350 or so works – wandering around the gardens of a manor house in the glorious sunshine is much more preferred than silently shuffling through the rooms in a museum in my opinion! It was a busy afternoon with people of all ages admiring the pieces, which were sculpted by 60 or so artists in all sorts of mediums. There really was a wide variety, and they were all for sale, although I’m sure I couldn’t afford any of them (although if I could it would be the hare!).

Here are just a few of my square-format shots taken at the exhibition (all iPhone4, squared up but otherwise as shot – unedited, it was actually that bright!) – I should set up a Flickr page to share them all, I might do that one day.

    Beautiful collection of images. You know I’ve only ever been to Doddington Hall to collect Christmas Trees. Really need to visit.

      Cheers Paul 🙂 We’ve never had a real tree… maybe we should go back to Doddington Hall for that purpose this year.
