Fresh Air Sculpture
a contemporary sculpture show taking place 16 June – 7 July, in the extensive gardens of The Old Rectory in the beautiful Cotswold village of Quenington. This biennial curated event prides itself on showcasing and selling unique sculptural pieces and contemporary craft whilst providing educational workshops and events for children and adults. Expect the traditional and the experimental; from cutting edge exterior furniture design and ornate stone work, to the softest of textiles and the glamour of glass. Over 10000 visitors meandered the gardens in 2017, enjoying the flora, the artworks, the enchanting atmosphere, and the chance to relax with drinks and locally produced foods. The Pool House transforms into a contemporary craft gallery for the duration of Fresh Air Sculpture. The exhibition “From Where I’m Standing”, invites artist makers from across disciplines to interpret views. This may simply be a view that is returned to again and again, or perhaps from memory or even fleetingly glimpsed. Or maybe it is about taking a position or viewpoint. The references will be varied and exciting with interpretations through clay, glass, metals, wood and cloth emerging to form unique collections for visitors to purchase.
