Bell House, a charity for wider learning, is taking part in the Dulwich Festival this May with a Sculpture Park in the gardens with 11 artists and three dancers exhibiting.
Isobel Finlay, a Camberwell graduate interested in traditional processes and hand-craft, is working on a piece inspired by the hexagonal Georgian windows at the front of the house.
Other exhibiting artists include sculpting duo Dominic McHenry and Jim Shepherd, or BASK, who work with geometric carved wood encased in forged metal, Augustus Stickland, trained carpenter and another Camberwell graduate, presents notched and pared monoliths and Ikra Arshad who experiments with playful perspex shapes.
Ms Arshad said: “Parks and outdoor spaces have been our saviour this past year.
“I was excited to be asked to take part in this show, mainly because right now, we need things that enhance our feelings of hope and joy more than ever.”
The sculpture park will open on May 7. Book tickets at https://www.bellhouse.co.uk/events/2021/5/7/bell-house-sculpture-park
