This summer, Dame Fiona Reynolds agreed to sit for the Environment Series Heads and there are two new sittings planned with the founders of Common Ground, starting in November. I am now trying to identify a good location for the exhibition of these heads.
I have several works at a joint show at Newport House, Herefordshire October 12-26th.
My winter carving project proceeds – RSPB Pulborough Brooks plays host to the 3 tonne block of limestone which I am carving once a week, most often on Saturday mornings should you ever find yourself passing through West Sussex. The move of the Lewes Group carving to Lewes’s Southover Grange Gardens also proceeds, with the council making final arrangements for its safe installation in October sometime.
The Sculpture Series Heads exhibition is now at Yorkshire Sculpture Park until 3rd November, after being well received at Woking’s Lightbox. The Times’ Arts Commissioning Editor recently wrote an article on her experience of sitting which you can see online here.
If you have an iPad, I can recommend The Times ‘app’ which gives free coverage of their papers for a month before a moderate subscription.
