Embracing the “Essential Form”

A major show of sculptures lovingly carved, sculpted, shaped or cast by a fantastic group of seven artists.

This exhibition, focussing essentially on 3D,  showcases works by Chris Hall (Jedburgh, Scot. Borders), Natasha Smith (Ancrum, Scot Borders), Gill Walton (Allanton, Scot. Borders), Aegir McIver (Peebles, Scot. Borders), Jennifer Tetlow (Lastingham, N Yorkshire), Julia Cowie (Fife) and Tom Fiddes (Lowick, Northumberland).

With the exception of our very talented up and coming sculptor, Tom Fiddes, the participating artists are all professional long established sculptors, carvers and metal workers of high reputation.

Each of these sculptors/metal workers aims to reveal, in their own distinctive way,  the inherent beauty and essence of their chosen medium and/or of the subject depicted, emotion felt or idea conceived.

Captivating, mesmerising and stimulating all at the same time, these are works of great beauty and certainly worth checking out. Here is a taster!
