Marks Hall Sculpture 2017
The second Marks Hall Sculpture Exhibition is now open. After the success of the first exhibition in 2015, Marks Hall welcomes even more artistic works for an even longer period.
Featuring over 300 pieces from more than 50 national and international artists, this year's exhibition opens today (29th July) until Sunday 10th September. From what I've seen so far, the curator and the Marks Hall team have once again worked really hard to make sure each piece is perfectly situated, showing them all at their best. Some will amaze, some will amuse and some possibly confuse, but isn't that what art is all about? If it creates debate, then it's succeeded.
There are some very different - and stunning - pieces this year, all of which are available to purchase, so bring your purse or wallet (if you dare!). Marks Hall is a fabulous place at any time, with all the art now carefully placed around the arboretum, it really is a great place to be.
If you see a weary photographer making images around the art, it's probably me after a very early start, so come and say hello. Visit www.markshall.org.uk for more details.
