24th May - 23rd September 2018
The Forestry Commission has teamed up with the Royal Society of Sculptors to create a new exhibition as part of Grizedale Forest’s 50th Anniversary of Arts and Culture in the forest.
Since 1968 artists have been drawn to Grizedale to create beautiful pieces inspired by this special place. Known for its internationally renowned forest sculpture collection, Grizedale now hosts a free rolling programme of contemporary exhibitions in its gallery set in the heart of the Lake District forest.
The ‘Inspired by Nature’ exhibition includes work from nine artists using a range of media - from pine needles to marble, bronze and wood. All the works presented have been inspired by nature in some way.
Featured artists include Sadie Brockbank, Linda Johns, Neil Ferber, Jeremy Turner, Anna Gillespie, Diane Maclean, Janne Malmros, Gerry Judah and Julian Wild.
