The sixth annual Sculpture Trail will again feature site-specific work, 3-D constructions and sculpture by artists from East Anglia in the lovely setting of the Raveningham Centre, near Beccles. In 2019 artists are being asked to explore the theme of The Woven Woodland through materials, structures and creative ideas. Submission details and an application form can be downloaded here Call To Artists 2019 FINAL. Closing date of 25th January.
The site is made up of three acres of lawns, shrubberies and orchard around Tudor buildings which house a range of intriguing artisan businesses and a café. For 2019 a new area of woodland, which gives views out over neighbouring meadows and pasture land, is being opened up and provides new opportunities for artists to make work on a larger scale. The Trail, which drew almost 4,000 visitors in 2018, is curated again by Sarah Cannell.
A pop-up gallery in the farmhouse will show prints, paintings, textiles and fragile pieces.
A family-friendly event – drawing materials and resources available to keep younger visitors interested.
Parking: plentiful free parking and designated disabled parking.
Toilets: including a wheelchair accessible toilet and nappy changing facilities.
Ravenous Café will be open every day for light lunches, drinks, cakes, and home-made refreshments, and will feature an exhibition of textiles.
