Out of Nature

Out of Nature Sculpture Exhibition

Artists in Residence

Out of Nature encourages hands-on connection with sculpture, and Artist Residencies at Newport House during the show enable visitors to see sculptors at work, ask questions and even have a go themselves.

Several artists created pieces during the 2017 show, and were happy to talk with visitors about their work.

Jon Edgar was artist in residence from Saturday 30 September to Sunday 8 October, making a piece inspired by The Cart Shed and how its activities and its mode of healing inspire him.

Kate Raggett created a land art drawing in the orchard with apples on Saturday 30 September and Sunday 1 October, which remained in place to be seen for the rest of the show.

Julia Hilton was artist in residence for most of the show. She worked with clay and imprints of plants collected at Newport House, and also ran several short workshops in which visitors could make their own clay butter dishes and bowls using plant imprints.

Tim Rawlins ran a six-day bronze-making workshop over the first three weekends of the show, and created his own work on site in between.

Rolf Hook was on site carving in wood for most of the show’s duration.

Green wood makers Mike Abbott and Gudrun Leitz demonstrated on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 October, as part of a weekend celebration of green wood.
