on form 16
on form - the only exhibition in the UK dedicated exclusively to stone sculpture - is all set to return to its glorious Windrush Valley setting at Asthall Manor from Sunday, 12th June to Sunday, 10th July. (12 noon to 6pm, closed Mondays and Tuesdays, open till 9pm on Thursdays.)
For on form 16 we have placed 268 sculptures by 39 sculptors from all over the UK, Norway, Switzerland, Italy and the Netherlands. For the first time, nearly half of our participating sculptors are women. These sculptors have been chosen for the quality of their work and their distinctiveness from each other. Some will be familiar to the on form faithful, others have returned after an absence, and some are completely new. Please explore our artist pages to find out more about these exceptional sculptors.
This year you will see exciting changes in both our indoor and our outdoor spaces. We have expanded into the landscape, with a wavy path of sculpture leading you across the water meadow to the banks of the River Windrush. The Ballroom, which has for years provided an elegant but minimalist interior gallery at on form, has taken on a new guise. Our Living with Sculpture project is a collaboration with designer and antiques dealer, Toby Lorford of Lorfords Antiques, offering visual inspiration for living with sculpture at home, where beloved pieces can rest as easily on a kitchen table as on a grand plinth. We hope to challenge mainstream views on displaying art in a gallery, and make sculpture an object of love.
The Potting Shed Cafe will once again be offering teas, coffees and lunches in Asthall Manor's idyllic walled garden. The Mad Hatter bookshop, selling books related to sculpture, gardens, ecology, philosophy and local history will be installed in the summer house by the pool. And there will be an exciting series of events - many of them free - to enrich your visit to on form.
