How many exhibition works:

Friday, 4 May 2018 to Sunday, 13 May 2018

Simply titled Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition, this show presents a selection of seven artists that work on a larger scale and whose work can all be sited outdoors as well as indoors. We have large scale ceramics alongside bronze, steel and concrete sculpture. This is the first collaborative exhibition between Axle Arts and Tasburgh House Hotel. Tasburgh House is a 5* boutique hotel in Bath, Somerset and would make a perfect destination for a weekend break. The first weekend coincides with Badminton Horse Trials and the second coincides with the opening of Bath Festival and the Country Living Festival, 2018. It runs over two weekends, dates are Friday 4th May to Monday 7th May and the Friday 11th May to Sunday 13th May. 

We are excited to be adding an indoor elelment to our exhibition and will now have ceramics, smaller sculpture, paintings and original print on show inside the hotel. Exhibiting artists here will be: Corinna Button RE, Lynne Cartlidge RCA, Neill Curran and Ian Edwards.

Artist ( Description ): 

Marc Bodie works in bronze and concrete, using his own body and face as reference for his larger than life busts and sculptures. Bodie's multi-layered work explores expressions of human distress and fragility experienced in many facets of our lives, including marginalisation. Dorothy Brook looks at movement, her sculptures capture the grace and beauty of dance with a clear and bold line, and are cast in bronze. Ian Edwards has coped with severe dyslexia all his life. His inspirational bronzes depict the strength and courage of endurance and achievements despite all. John Huggins sculptures engage with a rich dialogue of historical and cultural references. Rhian Jones is an emerging ceramic artist, hand building vessels which are smoke fired and present Japanese Kintsugi in a new light. Mick Morgan is an established ceramic artist based in Wales and hand builds large stoneware vessels inspired by the female form. Rick Kirby creates stainless and mild steel sculptures inspired by the human form, often creating over-sized views of male faces. Cornish based Tamsyn Trevorrow's ceramics are inspired by the textures and colours found along her local, native coastline.
