Devon artist Victoria Westaway art events 2018 - Showborough House Affordable Art Show, Hillersdon Collaboration, Friends of the Garden Sculpture Exhibition, Picton Garden Sculpture Exhibition, Avebury Manor (National Trust) Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition.
Showborough House (near Tewkesbury, Gloustershire) opens its garden every spring to host the Affordable Garden Art Competition and Exhibition. This year willow and wire sculptor Victoria Westaway will return and be exhibiting her latest willow sculptures. A wide variety of good but affordable sculpture, mostly by local sculptors, can be seen in the natural setting of the one and a half acre garden, which has been renovated over the last ten years.
There are works in different sizes, styles and media, including wood, metal, stone, glass, ceramic and resin by both local and emerging artists.
Victoria is collaborating with HILLERSDON on an arts project to show case several of her contemporary willow and wire woven sculptures. The show case is to coincide with a National Open Garden Scheme event Sunday 27 May, Monday 28 May (10am - 5pm). Admission £5.00, children free. Home-made teas on main terrace adjacent to house.
Victoria has been invited to exhibit her work at The Friends of the Garden Sculpture Exhibition 2018 in the beautiful gardens of Urchfont Manor, Wiltshire. The exhibition will take place from 22 June until 8 July and will be open from 11am – 6pm. Please note that the exhibition will be closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. Admission is £5 per adult; accompanied young people under 16 will have free entry.
Victoria has been invited back to display her willow and wire sculptures amongst the Plant Heritage National Collection of Autumn Flowering Asters in Colwall, Herefordshire. The garden is open from August until mid October including many days for the National Gardens Scheme. Please check with Picton Garden or the NGS Yellow Book opening dates and times. The garden has been featured in many magazines and newspapers and has been on several television programmes.
Victoria always looks forward to showing her work at Picton Garden a horticultural delight that nestles between the Herefordshire and Worcestershire boarders. Helen Picton first invited Victoria to show her willow sculptures back in 2013 when Vik created The Michaelmas Fairy (see slides below) that has now become a permanent sculpture within the garden.
Victoria is exhibiting at the Avebury National Trust Sculpture Exhibition in the Manor Gardens running Saturday 1st September - Sunday 7th October 2018. Avebury Manor gardens are arranged as a series of 'rooms', each with a different character, including Kitchen Garden, Topiary Garden, Lions Walk, Church Garden, East Garden, Half Moon Garden, Orchard, Monks Garden and South Lawn.
