Here at Holloways, we’re gearing up for our first Garden Art Exhibition where renowned artists and sculptors working in studios all around the country will be showcasing their work to the public.
Artists including Antony Bridge - the National Trust’s Artist in Residence at Croome - wildlife printmaker Shelly Perkins and still life painter Nicola Currie. They’ll be joining RHS gold medal-winning sculptor Christine Charlesworth and Herefordshire artist blacksmith Jon Clift.
They’re among more than 25 well-known names heading here with their work.
Already signed up are Paul Burton, who creates Earthlight sculptures inspired by his career in the mining industry, landscaper Peter Fletcher, who makes exquisite fire spheres, university art lecturer Heather Farmer, who creates striking canvases of wildflower meadows and Shropshire printmaker Julia Timmins.
Landscape artist Chris Williams, Mary Brittain - who paints bold and colourful canvases of gardens - and Welsh landscape painter David Thompson will also be exhibiting.
Paintings in oils, watercolours and dazzling gold leaf will sit alongside intricate giclee prints and bronze resin pieces, modern sculpture, garden ornaments and striking metalwork.
Every piece has been hand-picked by Edward, and the quality of work on show promises to be exceptional.
For every sale, artists will donate a percentage to WCF, which distributes money on behalf of the High Sheriff’s Fund to charities working with disadvantaged and vulnerable people across Worcestershire.
Visitors can also take part in the Meet The Artists programme throughout the week - a timetable will follow - and The Glasshouse Café will be open for coffee and locally-sourced, seasonal menus for breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea.
Pieces range from £50 to £5,000.
The Garden Art Exhibition is open Monday to Saturday, 9am-5pm, and 11am-4pm on Sunday 9th Feb.
