Sculpture in Context 2012 continues to build on 26 years experience in organising successful exhibitions.
Eleven of these exhibitions have been hosted by the National Botanic Gardens. Both established and emerging artists submit work and this annual exhibition is one of the most prestigious outdoor sculpture exhibitions in Ireland.
The National Botanic Gardens are not only a botanical haven and quiet oasis on the outskirts of Dublin. The gardens also offer a challenging venue which gives the artist the opportunity of realising large scale work.
It also gives visitors an opportunity to ramble and explore, sometimes finding sculptures in the most unusual of places.
With the exhibition due to wrap up on October 19th, get your running shoes on! It really is well worth the visit!
