Sculptor John Sydney Carter FRBS personally delivered the bronze ‘Heron’ to Knebworth.
The exhibition is curated by British Art Portfolio in association with Knebworth House. The show will feature work from contemporary British sculptors, incorporating some established names alongside inspiring new talent to create a show that will enlighten, provoke, excite and charm the visitor.
Henry Lytton Cobbold commented: “It was a great thrill to plant a piece as splendid as John’s ‘Heron’ in the centre of Gertrude Jekyll’s herb garden for the summer – it looks splendid and whets the appetite for a tremendous sculpture exhibition in July and August.” The exhibition opens to the public on 9th July and runs until 31st August. More information can be found on the Events section. Entrance to the Sculpture exhibition is included in the KnebworthPark and Gardens admission ticket making for a very good value day out.
