Open-Up: Hestercombe Gallery unveils series of lockdown-inspired outdoor artworks
Hestercombe Gallery is proud to unveil a brand new series of outdoor artworks commissioned in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Open-Up features eight artists with intimate knowledge of Hestercombe, many of whom have responded to the landscapes on the estate in the past. The works, distributed across all three of the period gardens at Hestercombe and beyond, range from subtle interventions involving copper plant tags, pigeon rings and galvanised nails, to bold stacked colours, giant bunting and orchard ladders. All artwork will be installed and opened at different times during August and the beginning of September.
Artists featured include Richard Long, Sarah Bennett, Megan Calver with Gabrielle Hoad, Jon England, Jo Lathwood, Philippa Lawrence and Lucy Soni.
