Established in 2013 as a biennial sculpture show to support and fund-raise for The Cart Shed charity, Out of Nature was the inspiration of Jenny Watt and held at her home, Newport House.

This year the exhibition has relocated to the Netherwood Estate where it will be held in the kitchen gardens of Michelin-starred Pensons Restaurant.

With so many cultural events cancelled, Out of Nature provides the local community and visitors from further afield with a rare opportunity this year to view, appreciate and purchase sculpture and other works of art in a beautiful, rural environment.

After the challenges and confinement of lockdown we believe, more than ever, in the importance of reconnecting with the natural beauty of landscape and art as a channel for finding solace and inspiration in an unpredictable world.

As with previous exhibitions, all profits from the show will be donated to the local mental health charity, The Cart Shed, whose work with people rebuilding their mental well being is more important at a time like this than ever.

"This year’s exhibition is titled ‘Reconnection’ because of the strange social dissonance we have all experienced over the last six months as a result of lockdown and our belief in the importance of art as a way of helping us accept and respond to the changed world we are living in," says Peta Darnley of the Netherwood Estate.

"We hope you will come and enjoy being able to see art first-hand again and, in doing so, support the work the The Cart Shed, a charity which does vital work in helping the mental well-being of people locally."
