Introduction

Following last year’s very successful exhibition, we are delighted to be returning to The Savill Garden in 2019.

Created in the 1930s by Sir Eric Savill, The Savill Garden is a beautiful arrangement of gardens and woods which lends itself to being the perfect backdrop for exhibitors and their work.

Sculptures will be placed intricately amongst various sections of the garden, leading the visitors on an exciting and artistic journey as they progress along the trail. There is a royal connection to the gardens therefore conservative selection is required, and please avoid themes involving royalty. Please note, we cannot accept sculpture suspended from trees at this venue.  

Are you up to the challenge of producing a creative toddler-proof sculpture and fixings? Bear in mind when choosing what to submit that Savill visitors may be children who touch, climb, hit and poke our prized pieces of art work, even though we try and protect more delicate things.

Please submit very good quality photos of your sculptures (avoid having clutter in the  background of shots), try and show your work to its best!. If you have really good photos of at least 1mb please upload these for possible use in publicity for the exhibition and to help the selection process.

Once again this year we will be selecting 1 or 2 pieces to place inside the Savill Building which houses the open plan coffee shop/ restaurant and shop.  Every visitor has to pass through this building, either before entering the garden or just stopping by for a cup of coffee and a meal. The pieces may perhaps reflect a seasonal angle as the exhibition crosses seasons from autumn through to Winter and the run up to Christmas. We can only select using the photos you submit - so please, the best quality.

We need a few lines to illustrate the inspiration and/or your ideas behind your piece. Remember that what we do may seem mundane to us, whilst to others, it is a strange alchemy, so make it interesting, this is your chance to speak to the viewer in your absence.

There will be no stewarding required.  All sales and enquiries will be handled through The Savill Garden staff. However, we require a rota of exhibitors to check our work is safe and sound and to do the usual cleaning up of mess left by birds (two hours max). We need 17 visits in total.

We are very much looking forward to receiving your online applications by 20th May 2019 and here's to a successful exhibition!

Many thanks and kind regards,
