Garden Sculpture Exhibition
An exciting sculpture exhibition will be on display through Knebworth House’s 28 acres of Formal Gardens from 1st July until 31st August. It is in collaboration with Matombo, a group of travelling sculptors that source artworks directly from solo artists, small workshops and co-operatives from many different parts of Zimbabwe.
“Matombo” means “stone” in the Shona language, a fitting name given that the exhibition is believed to be the largest display of stone sculpture in the South of England, featuring the works of more than 40 artists.
The exhibition is a great showcase of emerging and renowned artists, for both the enjoyment of visitors and for collectors to purchase. All the works have been curated by Orlando Compton, working closely with Zimbabwean sculptors Dudzai Mushawepwere and Matthew Nakhawale, who will be resident artists at the exhibition and will be happy to speak to visitors about the works.
Entry to the Garden Sculpture Exhibition is incorporated with general entrance to the Park & Gardens; to attend simply purchase tickets to the Park & Gardens (or House, Park & Gardens) on the date of your choice. It makes for an extra great value day out as families can enjoy a day at the Exhibition, Gardens, Park, Adventure Playground and fantastic trail of 72 life-sized dinosaurs. Season Ticket holders and children aged under 3 go free.
