FOOTPRINTS ON THE SANDS OF TIME
with a special focus in the indoor gallery on new work by Charlotte Mayer FRBS, took place last summer.
2016 marks the tercentenary of the birth of Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown, a man so influential that he is regarded as the ‘father’ of landscape architecture. His design style has come to epitomise the quintessence of the English countryside. The Capability Brown Festival 2016, managed by the Landscape Institute, celebrated Lancelot Brown with a nationwide series of events, exhibitions, competitions and projects to encourage people to discover and enjoy his landscapes. The Festival promoted Brown’s visionary and pioneering genius and a greater appreciation of our designed landscape heritage. www.capabilitybrown.org.
Lancelot Brown was a man who left deep “footprints on the sands of time” (A Psalm of Life by H. W. Longfellow). In the spirit of the festival of Brown's achievements and legacy, and the art and design of gardens, The Garden Gallery celebrated and promoted the role of contemporary sculpture and ceramics as key elements in the creation of beautiful gardens, a tradition reaching back centuries and now an integral part of garden design.
