The spectacular Shoreham Sculpture Trail will be one of the largest the UK has ever seen. Featuring 30 London Group members and invited artists, including many prominent UK sculptors. 76 artists will be exhibiting over 200 sculptures in 26 gardens. The astonishing diversity of the exhibits ranges from the monumental to the ephemeral with works in metal and stone, with interactive work and performance and the Trail will be particularly unusual in the number of site-specific works. The idyllic village of Shoreham Kent, a gem just on the edge of London, is a beautiful place to visit just for itself and in June the gardens of all sizes, many on the river, will be at their best – visitors couldn’t wish for more perfect surroundings in which to view sculpture. Most artists will be present to meet visitors during the trail and many will be giving talks. The Trail is curated by London Group President Susan Haire.
