Painswick Rococo Garden – 21 images from the Art in the Garden exhibition by Anne Wareham

August 2, 2012

in Articles, Events, General Interest, Shows

I cannot claim this as a review – rather the editor’s privilege to produce a brief, pictorial indication of what is to be seen at this exhibition, which we visited in the drizzle on the 31st July. I have a pile up of material waiting to be published here (our first blog review soon..) and life has been hectic, so, my apologies, especially for not crediting the sculptures.

I think the combination of sculpture and garden is an interesting subject in its own right – do they really complement each other, unless the garden is specifically designed for the works in question? Answers in an email if you have 800 words worth on the topic…(see also Helen Gazeley)

The exhibition is open at Painswick Rococo Garden until the end of the month. Details here. All the pictures are my own.

It is still a garden with gardeny bits, and unfortunately has roses…

And this kind of thing, which is really not good enough when you’re putting on a show..

The title of this piece is a tease – people are supposed to love lists.
