Beaulieu Hosts Popular Sculpture Exhibition For Fifth Year

Agent Provacateur - Maggie Butler
Sculptures created by some of the most talented amateur and professional sculptors from across the south of England will form one of the largest sculpture trails in the country from 23rd May until 20th August, featuring figurative, abstract, floral and animal pieces created by the members of the Surrey Sculpture Society.
Set within the picturesque grounds of the Beaulieu attraction, the exhibition begins at the entrance to the world famous National Motor Museum and draws visitors along its trail, through the Victorian Ornamental Kitchen and Flower Gardens and Abbey ruins to Palace House and tranquil waterside setting. Smaller sculptures will be displayed within Palace House, which is one of just ten designated Treasure Houses of England.

It will be the fifth year that Beaulieu will host this popular exhibition and also the 20th anniversary of the Surrey Sculpture Society, a well-established regional arts organisation with over 350 members, which has been featured on national radio and television.

“The Surrey Sculpture Society is delighted to be invited back once again to Beaulieu.  It is such a prestigious location and Beaulieu’s beautiful gardens provide the perfect setting to showcase our artists' work. The exhibition will also form part of our society’s 20th anniversary celebrations,” commented Sue Cundell, Chairman of the Surrey Sculpture Society.

Commenting on the success of the Sculpture exhibition last year the Hon. Ralph Montagu said: “The artworks add an extra element to the attraction for the thousands of visitors coming to Beaulieu and has become a much anticipated annual summer feature.”

Sue Cundell continued: “The sculptures range from traditional to contemporary styles offering broad appeal to suit all tastes and budgets. There is something for everyone to enjoy, from smaller works to major pieces of sculpture and all pieces in the exhibition are for sale.”

The exhibition can be seen as part of a visit to the Beaulieu attraction, which is open from 10 am every day.
