‘Human Nature’ – a new sculpture trail at The Bishop’s Palace
15th September 2018 – 25th November 2018
10am - 4pm
This Autumn, The Bishop’s Palace in Wells will host a stunning new sculpture trail in the atmospheric Gardens surrounding the medieval buildings.
Curated by Gallery Pangolin - one of the few galleries specialising in sculpture in the country - the sculpture trail will be made up of ten striking pieces of art which will be located throughout the acclaimed Inner Gardens of the Palace.
“Human Nature” will celebrate the qualities that characterise and define humankind. The exhibition will highlight the natural virtues and ways of thinking, feeling and being which are universal to all humankind.
The trail will comprise diverse sculptures from a disparate group of sculptors, including pieces by Lynn Chadwick, one of the giants of twentieth century sculpture; Jon Buck, RWA and a Fellow of the Royal Society of British Sculptors; William Tucker, who was awarded the International Sculpture Center’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2010; Ralph Brown, RA; Anthony Abrahams and Terence Coventry. Amongst the sculptures on show will be some large and striking pieces of over 2 metres in height, and materials used include bronze and resin.
Freddie Langdon-Daly, Public Events Co-ordinator at the Palace says “The exceptional Gardens of The Bishop’s Palace are the perfect backdrop for this thought-provoking new sculpture trail. Gallery Pangolin have curated a wonderful exhibition, designed to enhance and reflect the beauty of this unique setting”.
The sculpture trail is designed to appeal to all ages and separate printed trails for adults and children will be available to enhance the experience.
Included in standard admission. Open daily, visitors are advised to check the website for special events prior to making a special journey to visit the exhibition. https://bishopspalace.org.uk/
