on form this summer
Since the first exhibition in 2002, on form has been steadily building a reputation for thoughtful and playful exhibitions. The only sculpture exhibition dedicated entirely to works in stone, we encourage visitors to open all their senses, with a “please do touch” policy.
The popular Potting Shed cafe will be back, and for the first time we will have a bookshop, in association with Mad Hatter books of Burford. Look out also for an exciting series of events, including talks and tours by artists, curators and specialists, and theatre by Scary Little Girls.
These shots were taken in Paul Vanstone’s studio by photographer Sammy Green. They give a good sense of the stone carving life, and of the hard work that 30 sculptors are embarked on now in preparation for on form 14.
