After months of uncertainty, I must acknowledge with gratitude the support of our hosts at Ballymaloe and the commitment of all the artists who have been unstinting in their creative and logistical efforts to make this event happen. It has helped to make this event our largest yet. We want to celebrate that throughout July and August with all of those who wish to come and spend a while walking and talking along our sculpture route.”
The ‘sculpture walk’ will be accessible to all and visitors will be welcome to join Richard Scott and Hazel Allen any Thursday evening at 6pm or Friday afternoon at 2.30pm throughout the summer on the lawn in front of Ballymaloe House for a summer drink and a free one hour guided tour of the exhibition which this year will showcase 45 unique, rich and diverse works created by 27 Irish sculptors.
