Devon artist Victoria Westaway art events 2017 - Showborough House Affordable Art Show, Picton Garden 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 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 wonderfully below the Malvern Hills. 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.
