ArtsFest 2016 Sculpture Trail
Until the start of October, Lyme Regis indulges in public art like never before. A free printed Sculpture Trail Map is available to help you find the artwork. Fourteen sculptors will be represented through 35 works deployed over three distinct trails.
Online support is available through the ArtsFest website, providing a deeper insight into the artists and their work (including several videos commissioned specifically for the event) - ArtsFest Website
For those that have walked the trail, the organisers would greatly appreciate your feedback via the website – Survey page
Getting to know our sculptors
Our artists were selected from across the region and their work represents a comprehensive cross-section of the visual arts with the emphasis on outdoor display and sympathy with the specific sites chosen for the work.
To view their complete profiles click the link on their name below. Each has a different story and some stories have been animated with a short video clip.
Seeking New Funding
Would you like to help get a public art presence going in Lyme Regis on an ongoing basis?
Only through a successful bid for funds with Aviva are we likely to do it. That success could be possible if residents and friends of Lyme Regis vote the project to the top of its category.
We’d need you to register with Aviva, check that you are on OUR project, select the 10 votes option, and vote, then pass the same invitation on to family and friends. Voting closes at noon November 18th. Click here to vote.
In the town gardens, the sculptures which would remain for an extra year would include ‘Ripple’ by Michael Fairfax, ‘Speaking Volumes’ by David Parker, ‘Skateboarder’ by Greta Berlin, ‘Core Sample Pillar #1, and #2’ by Isla Chaney, ‘Trapeze’ by Clare Trenchard, and ‘Obsession’ by Pete Hackett. A bronze cast of ‘Hareman’ would be commissioned for an extended stay. Further sculptures may be included on privately-owned land as funds permit.
