  • Into the Wild Sculpture Exhibition

Compton Acres is proud to announce a sculpture exhibition “Into The Wild” in our stunning gardens.
The exhibition will showcase approximately 30 sculptures from seven different artists and will be available for viewing on a trail around the Wooded Valley and Rock and Water garden.

Visitors can expect to see a range of exotic animals and native wildlife sculptures, all available for purchase. Many charities will benefit from the artists’ support through the sale of their sculptures. Compton Acres hopes to offer a captivating viewing experience while highlighting some of the current issues associated with conservation and wildlife.

The sculptures will be integrated into an educational and fun experience for the Summer Children’s challenge. Families are encouraged to explore the sculptures and learn more about the artists’ inspiration and conservation messages.

We are thrilled to welcome pieces from renowned artists Tanya Russell, Suzie Marsh, Elliotts of London, Marjan Wouda, and Ama Menec. Rock Art who currently display stunning ‘Shona’ sculptures from Zimbabwe in the Plant Centre, are also taking part. In addition, four of the pieces by resident sculptor Brendon Murless will remain at Compton Acres, with his own viewing section from The Heather Gardens to the Japanese Garden entrance.

The exhibition will run from July 3rd to October, 2023, and visitors from all over the world are invited to experience the captivating sculptures at Compton Acres.
