Fresh Air Sculpture 2019: 16th June – 7th July 2019

freshair2019blog

Fresh Air Sculpture is a contemporary sculpture show taking place in the extensive gardens of Quenington Old Rectory, Gloucestershire.  This biennial curated event prides itself on showcasing and selling unique sculptural pieces as well as decorative arts in a beautiful outdoor setting.  Expect the traditional and the experimental; from cutting edge exterior furniture design and ornate stonework, to the softest of textiles and the glamour of glass. Over 10000 visitors meandered the gardens in 2017, enjoying the flora, the artworks, the enchanting atmosphere, and the chance to relax with drinks and locally produced foods.

Many installations are created specifically for the gardens, to encapsulate the quirky spirit of fun, creativity and history that comes together at Fresh Air Sculpture.  We’re looking forward to a ceramic installation across the river by Elaine Bolt, willow sculptures by Mary Butcher and Julia Clarke, a Beauty & the Beast Installation of eight glazed stoneware masks, two stone sculptures by Jitka Palmer, and Metamorphoman in white marble resin by John Williams.

The Pool House transforms into a contemporary craft gallery for the duration of Fresh Air Sculpture. The exhibition “From Where I’m Standing”, invites artist makers from across disciplines to interpret views. This may simply be a view that is returned to again and again, or perhaps from memory or even fleetingly glimpsed. Or maybe it is about taking a position or viewpoint.  The references will be varied and exciting with interpretations through clay, glass, metals, wood and cloth emerging to form unique collections for visitors to purchase.

16th June – 7th July 2019: Open 10am – 5pm every day:   Entrance £7.50, under 18s free

The Old Rectory, Quenington, Gloucestershire, GL7 5BN   http://www.freshairsculpture.com/   @freshairsculpture    #freshairsculpture2019
