Summer exhibition – Royal Society of Sculptors: 17 July – 18 September
This year’s Summer Exhibition showcases works from members and fellows, and has been guest curated by Robert and Nicky Wilson, the founders of Jupiter Artland.
Additionally, Caroline Achaintre’s Echo Peel will be shown on the sculpture terrace. The artist describes this piece as “fragile but also a protective layer. It reminds me of another type of outer layer where you change by putting it on. The two holes could be seen as eyes to see through or to see in to.”
You can visit the Royal Society of Sculptors between 11am and 5pm.
