Sculptures at Marks Hall Gardens & Arboretum

 This August, Marks Hall are holding their sculpture exhibition it runs from the 29th July through to September 10th. Set in their beautiful grounds & gardens. I visited their previous exhibition in July 2015 and my post can be found here. I will be visiting again later this month and will try to get some better shots of the individual pieces. Here in the meantime are a few of the exhibits that I most like.  


Where I can I have given the title of each work along with the artist's name. My copyright applies to the photos only. Marks Hall website can be found here.

 This exhibit is one of my favourites, my still pictures do not do it justice so I will return and video it in action in better light. The way the wind and the light catches the metal sails, I could watch it all day, very soothing.  A beautiful piece with excellent engineering.
