A Celebration of Contemporary Art in a Beautiful English Garden

Sunday 5 June – Sunday 26 June 2022

The Old Rectory, Quenington, Gloucestershire GL7 5BN


Fresh Air Sculpture is a biennial sculpture exhibition held in the expansive organic garden of The Old Rectory in the Cotswold village of Quenington and affords a unique opportunity to see a creative mixture of traditional, modern and cutting-edge sculpture in a stunning outdoor setting. The Old Rectory gardens offer vast lawns joined by a bridge over the River Coln, hidden walkways through trees, pergolas and around tennis courts, beautiful flower and vegetable plots, and large impressive green houses.

Fresh Air Sculpture gathers over 130 contemporary pieces of outside sculpture together in this tranquil setting, many of which have been created specifically for the gardens. The excitement of Fresh Air Sculpture is the huge diversity of materials exploring a variety of media: from stone to textiles, ceramic to glass, sound to video, mosaic to metals, rubber to resin. Monumental pieces sit alongside smaller works to suit every size of garden or outdoor space.

The Pool House is converted into a modern gallery shop showcasing the best in contemporary design and craft – glass, textiles, leather, jewellery, ceramics and more.

All work is available to buy and commissions are welcome.
