OUR NEXT EXHIBITION
HARLOW CARR GARDENS, HARROGATE
1 SEPTEMBER UNTIL JANUARY 2021
In order to maintain the delicate balance between order and disorder which is characteristic of a garden such as Harlow Carr, invasive species, both animal and vegetable, must be kept in check. In some ways, introducing sculptural objects into a naturalistic environment might also be intrusive or invasive.
As a group of individual artists with diverse approaches to making sculpture, the Yorkshire Sculptors Group will tackle the challenge of exhibiting within the landscaped gardens in our own personal ways. In thinking about our work, however, we will all be considering the ways in which our manmade interventions have the potential to enhance, or to disrupt the balance of this beautiful semi-natural environment.
This will be our first exhibition post-lockdown and will no doubt reflect the unusual times in which we now live. Many of the 25 sculptures that we plan to show are still being made and, in the coming weeks, we will be using our website and social media to highlight some of the innovative and exciting objects that will 'invade' and hopefully enhance this unique setting.
The above drawing is a proposal by Garry Barker for a number of brightly coloured ceramic pieces - neither fish nor fowl - that don't 'quite fit in', the very definition of an invasive species.
WELCOME TO NEW MEMBERS
