Art and Sculpture Exhibition Arriving at Delamore

26 April 2019 chsw Events, Fundraising

Delamore Art and Sculpture Exhibition will be opening on 1st May bringing a month of artistic delights to Delamore house and gardens at Cornwood near Ivybridge for all to enjoy.

Sculpture at Delamore Arts Exhibition
This is the 17th year of the annual event which presents the largest collection of artist’s work in one place in the south west. Last year around 150 artists exhibited work and a record 8,000 people visited the historic estate in Cornwood on the southern edge of Dartmoor to view the pieces displayed in both the gardens and the house.

Each year the exhibition supports a different charity and Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) has been chosen as the beneficiary charity this year.

CHSW has three children’s hospices in the region including Little Harbour in St Austell which offers children with life limiting and life-threatening illnesses short breaks with their families. The hospice provides vital support in a home from home environment, often over many years, from diagnosis to bereavement and beyond.

Zoe Partridge, Community Fundraiser for CHSW said “We were absolutely delighted when we found out that we were the chosen charity for this year’s Delamore Art and Sculpture Exhibition.

It attracts visitors from far and wide which is a great opportunity for us to raise awareness of our charity to them.

As part of the exhibition we will have a memory and wishes tree in the garden which visitors can contribute to as well as an angel trail for children to do around the garden. We are really looking forward to being part of this special event.”

Visitors should allow a full day to enjoy the exhibition and gardens, and there is a café selling home-made soups and cakes on site. The exhibition will run from 1st May – 31st May and will be open from 10.30 to 16.30 every day, including weekends and bank holidays. Admission is £8 (Under-16s free) and includes a printed catalogue.  Parking is free and dogs are welcomed in the car park field and around the lake, but not inside the formal gardens.
