The spectacular Shoreham Sculpture Trail was one of the largest the UK has ever seen. Featuring 30 London Group members and invited artists, including many prominent UK sculptors, 80 artists exhibited over 200 sculptures in 26 gardens. The astonishing diversity of the exhibits ranged from the monumental to the ephemeral, from works in metal and stone to interactive work and performance. The Trail was particularly unusual in the number of site-specific works with over 30 artists making work especially for the event. The idyllic village of Shoreham in the Darenth Valley, in Kent, is a gem just on the edge of London and a beautiful place to visit. Its gardens of all sizes, many with stunning river frontage, couldn’t have made more perfect surroundings in which to view sculpture. The Trail was curated by London Group President, Susan Haire.
