Out of nature Sculpture Exhibition 3rd to 25th October 2015

On October 3rd 2015,  “Out Of Nature” will present its 2nd exhibition.

Opening Dates & Times

October 3rd - 25th 2015

Open from 10.30am - 5.30pm

At Newport House,
Almeley, Herefordshire, HR3 6LL


Admission £5, Children Free

Over 40 artists and 300 pieces set across the beautiful formal gardens of Newport House, and its newly restored 2 ½ acre kitchen garden.


All to celebrate our link with Nature. To remind ourselves that in spite of a modern lifestyle that often treats Nature as irrelevant we are actually creatures of it, and can find connection to the Universe and to Nature’s rhythms, and healing, through simple activities, provided we’re out there, and in it.

The theme resonates with The Cart Shed’s philosophy: transforming lives by engaging people with mental health issues through coppicing and green wood craft in a woodland setting.

Profits from “Out Of Nature” will be used to support The Cart Shed’s work, with the sculpture show acting as a platform to highlight how effective this therapeutic activity  is.

Being active and outdoors is cheap and easily accessible to most people, and the health benefits are increasingly recognised.  To be surrounded by trees in a safe environment confers feelings of peace, contentment, enhancing self esteem, and can encourage a real sense of belonging and purpose.

“Out Of Nature” celebrates Nature and supports The Cart Shed, but the pieces presented also constitute one of the most ambitious shows in the country in scale, as well as quality and creativity.

“Out Of Nature” will be open daily from October 3-25 from 10.30am to 5.30pm

Entrance £5, children free.

Check for talks and workshops, also for local restaurants and B&Bs.

All works are for sale (profits from the 20% commission, ticket sales and other sales at “Out Of Nature” will go to The Cart Shed to support its ongoing work).
