Savill Garden 2023

The exhibition runs for longer this year and starts in early September, to maximize visitor numbers while the weather is still fine.

The Savill Garden is a wonderful arrangement of gardens and woods which lends itself to being the perfect backdrop for our work. Sculptures will be placed intricately amongst the various interconnected gardens, allowing the viewers to imagine how the sculpture would look in their own gardens, whilst also having large open spaces for bigger pieces.

There will be limited space for a small number of wall hangings.

As it is a late autumn exhibition, leading into winter, pieces that reflect this seasonality are looked on favourably by the selection panel at Savill Gardens, who have the final say- but all themes and mediums are welcome. It is usually a very popular exhibition with good sales which are handled by the staff themselves, so NO STEWARDING is required-always a bonus for those who live a long way away!

There will be a cleaning rota, which you may be asked to participate in, but it is only 1 to 2 hour job of checking the sculptures for damage and giving them a quick wipe over…it’s actually a nice opportunity to walk the trail in full and see everyone elses work in situ.

The garden is large and welcomes sculptures of all sizes, although they emphasis that artists MUST be self-sufficient when it comes to installing their pieces. A tractor is usually available to transport the heavy pieces, but please don’t rely on Savill Garden staff to do the heavy lifting!

All submitted work must be for sale and suitable for outdoors. The Savill Garden staff will select 1 or 2 pieces to place inside the Savill Building which houses the open plan coffee shop, restaurant and gift shop.

In total around 65-70 pieces are chosen to make up the trail.

It is very important that you send good quality photos that clearly show the piece. Some of these may be used for publicity so it pays to make an effort. They MUST be named in the following format
