Sculpture Trail 2020

RavST_1The 2020 Sculpture Trail at Raveningham features 48 selected artists and makers across 3 acres of grounds who are responding to the theme of Creative Odyssey. This could be about physical, emotional or artistic journeys and artists will develop ideas, artwork, sculpture, site specific works, stories, magic and more for the meadows, pond, gardens, and woodland at Raveningham. This year the trail will also embrace the magic of the space at twilight and the team plan to light the trail and artworks for evening viewings by visitors. We plan to push the boundaries of the exhibition forward towards the light at a time when ecological and political events in the world can feel quite dark. By letting our imaginations and aspirations soar we hope to create a sculpture exhibition that inspires visitors and creates the opportunity for artists to experiment and create. The Sculpture Trail team is committed to encouraging public interaction with contemporary art in a rural setting as well as creating space and opportunity for artists to show and sell their work to a diverse audience.

See our 2020 Sculpture Trail artists below, more information to follow. We are all working towards the trail being open daily during August from Saturday 1st – Monday 31st August, 10-5pm. Obviously this is our Plan A and we need to be flexible in the current circumstances. Plan B would be a delayed start date, check for current information on this website or at @raveninghamsculpturetrail on Instagram.
