An exhibition of garden sculpture can currently be seen at the Old Chapel Gallery in Pembridge, featuring unique birds and animals in stoneware by sculptor Simon Griffiths. He has made several Barn and Tawny owls, kestrels, kites, blackbirds and thrushes, all life size with some displayed on wooden posts.

Also on display is the work of five artist blacksmiths, including water features, dragonflies, planters, green men, poppies, ferns, sheep, buzzards, herons, hares, owls as well as abstract pieces along with practical garden furniture, garden arch, hanging seat and plant supports. Some will be galvanised to protect them from the weather and some will feature hand blown glass.

Sculptor David England who lives and works in Herefordshire has carved some new smaller pieces using Portland and Forest Of Dean stone, each one unique and will include the ever favourite Green Man, while sculptor Helen Sinclair produces limited edition and unique contemporary sculpture in stone resin.

The exhibition runs throughout the summer, daily 11am to 5pm, Tuesdays by appointment, and from 11am to 4pm on Sundays.

Just open at the gallery is the Summer Exhibition, Rings on the Water, which features work by talented British contemporary artists and makers, some of which will be new to the gallery.

Returning by popular demand will be artist Karen Pearce who draws inspiration from her local surroundings in West Wales. Also returning to the gallery is artist Lizzy Waterhouse with a new collection of original drawings of birds. Potter Robert Goldsmith will be showing his latest design of hand thrown and decorated stoneware pottery. Jemima Jameson paints in acrylics on wood panels and there will be new porcelain jewellery by Gill Laverick. The exhibition runs until the end of August.
