Participation in the exhibition is through a selection process, or invitation. 


DEADLINE: Saturday 19 March 2022, 11:59pm (sharp)


In 2021 we were delighted to host the exhibition again after a year's absence due to the pandemic. We were fortunate to be able to document and archive the exhibition with a Virtual Exhibition which you can still view HERE. 

Artists applying this year are encouraged to view the virtual exhibition and take inspiration from how the sculptures work and interact within the garden environment.
