Call To Artists – For the 2021 Sculpture Trail at Raveningham we are looking for artists, sculptors, makers to create uplifting, inspiring, artworks in response to the magical natural site at Raveningham. 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. You could create works in response to these ideas or more generally to the natural space at Raveningham thinking about the flora/fauna. Artworks could 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. Artists working in any medium are welcome and there is the opportunity to work to a large scale in some of the open meadows and wooded areas. (scroll down for application form).
Trail dates: 1st – 31st August 2021, 10 – 5 daily, NR14 6NU.
The 2021 Sculpture Trail at Raveningham will also embrace the magic of the space at twilight and the team plan to light parts of the trail and artworks for evening viewings by visitors. Any artists who already work with light as part of their work or would like to experiment with light are also encouraged to apply.
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 exhibition 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. During the hugely successful 2020 Sculpture Trail we had to introduce a booking system for visitors, we will keep this in place and other safety measures for 2021.
