The Red Orb Sculpture Exhibition 30 Aug- 5 Sept
The Red Orb Exhibition' - Raising the profile of three dimensional art to a new level!
10 Purbeck Sculptors, 9 invited sculptors, 5 selected sculptors, all with one aim in common:-
A unique collaboration, exclusively showcasing an eclectic mix of contemporary sculpture, from some of the South's most accomplished three-dimensional artists, working in a diverse variety of mediums and styles, from willow to wire, and from the classical to the contentious!
Featuring work from Andrew Thomas, Marzia Colonna ARBS, Jonathan Sells, Greta Berlin, Robert Mileham, Vivien Mallock ARBS, Scott Taylor, Richard Atkinson-Willes, Moira Purver ASWA, Emma Pickering, Martin Debenham, Carlotta Barrow, Chris Burke, Robin Beuscher, Sue Lansbury, Kim Creswell, Jo Burchell, and Jamie Hart. It will be a totally new experience for Purbeck, as an exhibition of this kind has never previously been organised in this area before.
Curator Andrew Thomas said:
“This is such a tremendous achievement for all that are involved.” “Purbeck is traditionally known for its landscape artists, but we really want to change people's perspective of what is happening here.” “There is definitely an emerging cultural art scene that will rival anything in the U.K. which is hugely positive for us.” We hope that with enough support, the Red Orb Exhibition will be an annual event.” “Leeson House is also such a unique venue, I think everyone who visits will be surprised and inspired.”
