We are committed to encouraging public interaction with contemporary art in a rural setting as well as creating space and opportunity for artists to experiment, show and sell their work to a diverse audience. 68 Artists have been selected to take part in the 2021 Raveningham Sculpture Trail and we will all be very busy preparing artworks for the Trail which will be open July 31st – Sept 5th. Online booking for visitors will open from early July and we will keep in place all of the social distancing and other safety measures we developed in 2020 to ensure that visitors and artists can enjoy the trail in a relaxed way.
As our personal and collective creative journeys have been thrown off course or changed tack wildly this year we are continuing our Creative Odyssey at Raveningham by thinking particularly about the importance and instinctive drive to create a safe place, shelter, home, nest, space, spiritual or natural haven. Artist’s will also be responding to the magical natural site at Raveningham thinking about the flora/fauna which have lifted our spirits celebrating everything from the tiny Fungi in the woods to the beautiful Red Kites and Marsh Harriers above. Artworks will be in the form of sculpture, site specific works, stories, magic, sound, light, film and more for the meadows, pond, gardens, and woodland at Raveningham. We have an exciting opportunity here 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 trail that inspires visitors and creates the opportunity for artists to experiment and create. We are committed to encouraging public interaction with contemporary art in a rural setting as well as creating space and opportunity for artists to experiment, show and sell their work to a diverse audience.
