|About us - The Garden Gallery - Contemporary garden sculpture - Sculpture exhibitions - Contemporary sculpture - Garden sculptures|
THE GARDEN GALLERY exhibits and sells contemporary sculpture, ceramics, glass and furniture for gardens and interiors. Proprietor Rachel Bebb, a garden designer, established the gallery in 1994 and holds regular sculpture exhibitions. She represents and promotes about fifty outstanding contemporary artists creating garden sculptures and other works of art. The gallery can arrange commissions for unique, site-specific pieces on any scale. Much of the work exhibited at The Garden Gallery is equally suitable for displaying indoors. The gallery also supplies sculpture to luxury yachts.
Sculpture, a beautiful ceramic pot or a finely-carved wooden bench have a life and a meaning which cannot be imbued by any manufacturing process. A lasting relationship can be established with a work of art which will grow and give pleasure for many years. In the garden, the elemental nature of stone, clay, bronze, glass and wood creates an empathy with plants and trees, land forms, water and light – each can help to enhance the other. Many works of art at The Garden Gallery are displayed in a lovely garden.
Rachel Bebb has an M.A. in Modern and Contemporary Art from Winchester School of Art (Southampton University). She has curated two exhibitions in Salisbury Cathedral, one of sculpture by Peter Eugene Ball, and the other of work by Charlotte Mayer FRBS. In Winchester in 2011/12, she curated an exhibition at the Discovery Centre called ‘The Figure in the Landscape’, which included sculptures by Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore and Peter Randall-Page FRBS. Also in 2012 she co-curated an exhibition of sculpture in Winchester Cathedral called ‘Reflect’. Rachel served six years as chairman of Hampshire Gardens Trust and is now a trustee.
Rachel is a trustee of the Hampshire Cultural Trust which champions world-class culture and exists to showcase, connect and empower Hampshire's creative economy. The independent charity works collaboratively to bring organisations, people and ideas together for greater impact. www.hampshireculturaltrust.org.uk
