Friday 25th March, 12noon
Join us for a talk with sculptor Michelle Reader, who has created pieces for the new Art Trail linking The Harley Gallery to Creswell Crags.
Michelle makes her sculptures from recycled and unusual materials. For this commission, she has created two life-size horse sculptures out of reclaimed materials from the Welbeck estate.
"The sculptures represent an encounter between a prehistoric species and a present-day species making the link across time between Welbeck and Creswell Crags. The contemporary animal, a racehorse inspired by the lineage of the ‘bloody-shouldered Arabian’ brought to Welbeck by Edward Harley, comes face to face with its ancestor, a wild horse found locally 40,000 years ago."
The sculptures will be on show in The Harley Courtyard.
Join us to discover more about Michelle's work and explore her fascinating processes.
