An exhibition of contemporary sculptures by members of the Yorkshire Sculptors’ Group will take place at Pocklington’s Burnby Hall Gardens.

Set in the inspirational Gardens, the nine acres of woodland, lakes and Gardens will provide an open air gallery for a diverse range of work, using many different materials and processes. Thirty pieces will be on display from Saturday (30 May).

A spokesperson for Burnby Hall Gardens, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to see a wide variety of contemporary sculptures set against the fabulous vistas that our Gardens provide.

“We know that our visitors will enjoy the experience of seeing these works on display throughout the summer.”

The Yorkshire Sculptors Group was set up in 1985 with the intention of bringing together sculptors living and working in the Yorkshire region to promote their work through exhibitions and discussions. Their work has been displayed in many venues throughout Yorkshire and beyond, including York Minster, the cathedrals of Ripon and Durham, the Bowes Museum, and many public and private galleries in London and across the UK.

Further information about the group can be found on their website www.yorkshiresculptorsgroup.org .

The exhibition will run from Saturday (30 May) to 13 September and the Gardens are open between 10am and 5.30pm daily.
