Artists & Exhibitors - 2009

There were sixty sculptors exhibiting their work, many of whom have gained an international reputation for their work.  We carefully selected work from across the UK including sculptures from Somerset, London, Edinburgh and of course the East Midlands.

The Sanctuary played host to over 150 exhibits created in a variety of substrates including stone, metal,wood,resin and perspex. In addition sculptures were created using water and neon light and other exotic and unusual materials. They exhibited within the grounds of the 15 acre swan sanctuary which boasts 5 spectacular lakes, landscaped grass and gladed areas interspersed by gravel paths.
