First View Gallery Summer Exhibition

The Summer Exhibition at First View Gallery Stourhead is on until Sunday 28th June.
Their opening hours are 11am-5pm every day.

I have three pieces in the exhibition which are small painted sculptures. The base sculptures are by Alan Dun who creates a wide range of sculptural work including such base sculptures for public art projects and further decoration.

Painted Lady

Inspired by William Morris Acanthus leaf designs, this hare  also has a 'Painted Lady' butterfly on her chest.

 Golden Fleece

My design on this beautiful ram sculpture is based on William Wordsworth's 'Daffodils' poem and includes some of the words.

Green man pig

I have adorned the little mini pig with sculpted oak leaves and acorns, and given him a verdigris bronze look finish.
