Grounds be­come gallery for work by 18 artists

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - News -

The Sculp­ture In The Gar­den show at God­in­ton House is now open, bring­ing to­gether the work of 18 artists.

It is run­ning un­til Au­gust 13 with the gar­dens open daily from 1pm to 6pm.

The British artists have been cho­sen for their broad range of styles and ma­te­ri­als, in­clud­ing Richard Cresswell’s steel and alu­minium Mur­mu­ra­tion, Lynn Baker’s glass daisies and tulips and Jo Ansell’s stone fig­ures.

Six of the artists are new to this show and all the work is for sale.

God­in­ton’s head gar­dener Viv Hunt, who or­gan­ises the an­nual show, said: “We are al­ways thrilled to in­stall the new work and see how it brings the gar­den to life.

“It’s a real joy to make the gar­den into a gallery for three weeks ev­ery year.

This year we have work for ev­ery bit of the gar­den – carved wood and stone for the wild gar­den, shin­ing alu­minium ab­stracts on the for­mal lawns and ponds and charm­ing smaller fig­u­ra­tive work for the in­ti­mate Ital­ian gar­den. Ev­ery piece has its own space.”
