In Nature:
A Celebration in Sculpture

Opens Sunday 3 April 2022

A special exhibition open Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays, 3 April - 5 June 2022

(closed good Friday and Saturday 23 April)

11am - 5pm

The Secret Garden, the only secure outdoor space in the city for showing valuable sculpture, hosts temporary exhibitions by nationally and internationally exhibited artists. Its beautiful planting scheme is the perfect backdrop for works of art and the garden itself is an oasis of calm in which to enjoy them. ‘In Nature’ takes the theme of trees and seed forms. It features major sculptures including the magnificent large-scale Richmond Oak, and accompanying works, by Kenneth Armitage; three striking tree forms by Julian Wild; a selection of Wendy Taylor’s acclaimed seed series: Sycamore, Fir Cones, Poppy Seed, Acorn and Cob Nut; and innovative sculptures by Will Nash. The exhibition includes new works ideally suited to this setting. 

 

Visitors of all ages are welcome. Entry is free and the garden is accessible for wheelchairs, enabling a wide range of people to enjoy high quality sculpture in a relaxing atmosphere. During public openings there is a very popular café, by TABLE Brighton, offering the best homemade Sussex fare.
