Surrey Sculptures On Show at Beaulieu

Bluebells - Joanna Lloyd
At a special Preview evening held in the gardens of Palace House the Hon. Ralph Montagu, welcomed members of the Surrey Sculpture Society to Beaulieu where, until the 20th August, the attraction is playing host to the Society’s latest exhibition of stunning artwork.  Over 70 pieces, ranging from small to large scale works, are on display in the Montagu family home, Palace House, as well as the historic setting of 13th century Beaulieu Abbey and surrounding grounds and gardens.

Mr Montagu said: “This is the fifth year that we have hosted this popular exhibition by the Surrey Sculpture Society and we are delighted to welcome them back. There is again an excellent selection of work to discover and it is a wonderful way to bringing another element of interest for visitors to Beaulieu during the summer months. There were a high number of sales last year and I hope we can match that again this year.”

In response Sue Cundell, Chairman of the Surrey Sculpture Society, said:  The Society began with just fourteen members, twenty years ago, and now numbers over 350 members, from highly talented amateurs to professionals, working in all mediums. We are delighted to be exhibiting in this lovely venue again, Beaulieu’s beautiful gardens and house provide the perfect setting to showcase our artists’ work.”
