Venue, Timing and Cost
This is the third year that the National Trust will host the Oxford Sculptors Group show, ‘Exploring Form’, in the stunning surroundings of Greys Court, near Henley.
Thirty artists, many of them local, will show more than 150 sculptures, ranging from traditional stone and wood to structures in steel, ceramics and bronze resin.
The beautiful gardens are laid out in sections bounded by hedges and flint walls, creating a series of ‘outdoor rooms’. From June 1st-23rd they will be inhabited by temporary residents: resin rabbits graze among the flowers, eyed by a stainless steel hawk; sculptured dogs lie around obediently while fish out of water do improbable things with steel balls; abstract forms tax or soothe the imagination and the human form is there in all its diversity.
In the ancient Cromwellian building, not normally open to the public, you can view close-up the artistry of smaller works in wood, stone and ceramics. Younger visitors will enjoy a Childrens’ Trail.
All work is for sale, with a proportion going to the National Trust.
National Trust entry fees apply.
