Waveney & Blyth Sculpture Trail

Waveney & Blyth Sculpture Trail

Waveney & Blyth Sculpture Trail

A trail of sculptures and site-specific artwork will snake its way along an idyllic south Norfolk river this summer.
The River Waveney Sculpture Trail will feature more than 40 works of art nestled on a 24-acre site of lakes, meadows and woodland boasting wild mint, orchids and deer.
Organised by Waveney & Blyth Arts the event builds on the success of last year’s trail and will take place at the River Waveney Study Centre near Bungay.
Many established artists such as Patrick Elder, Vanessa Pooley, Mark Goldsworthy, Bridget Heriz, Ros Newman and Michael Lewis will be joined by up and coming artists taking part for the first time.

Curated by Dulcie Humphreys, of Fairhurst Gallery in Norwich, the sculptures range from a six foot tall bronze totem pole and figures made from steel, wood and reeds to a 25 foot fishing boat that has been disassembled and reconstructed in different forms and a scaled up toy wooden rabbit.

A programme of workshops, guided walks, and events will accompany the trail.
Set out on two loops, the trail totals a little over one mile, with both loops accessible by wheelchair.
The group has put a number of assistance schemes in place to ensure as many people as possible can enjoy the trail, including a pre-recorded audio guide to the Sculpture Trail, a portable hearing loop for workshops and a British Sign Language interpreted Curator’s Walk.
The tearoom and visitors’ centre at the site will be open throughout the trail and will host the accompanying exhibition ‘Glimpses of the Waveney’ featuring work by members of the Harleston & Waveney Art Trail Collective.
