Details

 

Established and emerging local artists are invited to submit their 3D work in any medium that is suitable for outdoor public display.

This is a great opportunity for artists to get paid to exhibit their work in an outdoor context.

The Lyme Regis Sculpture Trail is located across the Langmoor and Lister gardens in the heart of the stunning Jurassic coastal town. Perched above the beach, with far-reaching views to the famous Cobb and coastline beyond, these public gardens provide a perfect outdoor gallery amongst the woodland, lawns and flower boarders. The sculpture trail receives thousands of visitors throughout the year and is managed by The Arts Development Company with the support of the Lyme Regis Town Council. Artists will be selected by the team at The Arts Development Company, who are looking to represent a cross-section of the visual arts and to encompass different materials and style.

we are setting up the new Bridport green spaces sculpture trail to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The trail will lead visitors and residents through to the designated green spaces.  Artists will be selected by the team at The Arts Development Company, an independent local artist and Bridport Town Council, who are looking to represent a cross-section of the visual arts and to encompass different materials and style.
