Valley of Vision Sculpture
Sunday 21st June 11:00 AM - Sunday 5th July 2020 5:00 PM
A spectacular large-scale exhibition featuring an intriguing line-up of prominent sculptors curated by Susan Haire.
There will be impressive pieces on a monumental scale and the diversity of the exhibits will range from works in metal and stone to ephemeral and interactive work and performance. The artist Samuel Palmer coined the phrase ‘Valley of Vision’ when he lived in Shoreham in his youth in the 1820s and the Darenth Valley was the inspiration for his celebrated visionary landscape paintings. Many of the exhibitors have made works inspired by the Darenth Valley in the same spirit as Palmer and the show will be particularly unusual in the number of sculptures that will be site specific with some work being made in direct response to Palmer. The gardens of all sizes will be at their best during the show offering great appeal to garden enthusiasts. Visitors couldn’t wish for more beautiful surroundings in which to view sculpture – truly an art-lovers' paradise. 11.00 - 17:00 each day. An ideal family day out but children must be accompanied – there will be a special children's activity. Mostly wheelchair accessible and dogs on leads welcome.
Tickets also on the day, cash and card in the church and water meadow, cash only in all other gardens, under 15s free
