Marks Hall Sculptures

 This is my third post of this year's exhibition.  As I have said in my previous posts the gardens, grounds & woods are a superb setting for the sculptures. My first post can be seen here & my second can be seen here.

Where I can I have given the title of each work along with the artist's name. My copyright applies to the photos only. Marks Hall website can be found here.

Marks Hall Gardens & Arboretum


Last Sunday we paid a second visit to the Marks Hall's sculpture exhibition. The gardens and grounds are kept in great condition, probably the best we have ever seen. They have done an excellent job of placing the exhibits in a setting to match the size of the sculpture. This time with a few exceptions I have concentrated on the smaller items.

I visited their previous exhibition in July 2015 and my post can be found here.

This exhibit has been setup such that it almost disappears in to the background, hence it's title, Portal
