The Turrill Sculpture Garden - The Turrill Sculpture Garden - Saturday 11th September - 9.30am - 4pm

Saturday, September 11, 2021 - 09:30 to 16:00
The Turrill Sculpture Garden


A small oasis of a public garden with OPT award, behind Summertown Library, with changing displays of sculpture throughout the year. 

Our current exhibition: 'Trilogy' - Stone, Glass and Clay Exhibition by David Williams, Chris Beckett and Louise Allison is running from 31st July - 18th September.  For those who haven't had a chance to enjoy the creativity of Louise Allison's ceramic figures or the strong and simple beauty of David William's stone carving, we can now bring you a third element as they are joined by Chris Beckett, a fused glass artist and sculptor. She too works with the natural world, excited by its patterns and colours and responding with a glorious diversity of elements in glass. During the Oxford Open Doors day, we will have all three artists demonstrating in the garden.

There is so much that will fit well into any garden for you to enjoy amidst the lush greenery of the Turrill in summer.
