Spring Sculpture at Mica Grange

It is a treat being able to view sculpture in a rural garden setting. The different exhibitions held at Mica Grange on the slopes of Mt. Alexander create opportunities to view new works – some by artists seen previously and some by new artists.

I wonder what these children are pondering. I think they would look great gazing into a small pool with fish or frogs.

Who would have thought an earwig would be the subject for sculpture? And it is so lovingly crafted.

It is amazing what can be created using chicken wire, old metal and reclaimed metal shelving.

I think these frocks are a delight.

  1. Very interesting series of works, I liked best the second one you photographed. Was it rusty metal?

    • Hi Susan, Yes, the art work hanging on the wall is rusty metal. Many of the pieces are made from recycled or repurposed materials – rusty metal being a favourite.

  2. I love your exclamation – “Why Not?”. I think my favorites are the metal frocks, but that last set of photographs is amazing. Is that glass in a metal frame? The amber colors made me wonder if it was some other type of media.

  3. Hi Lori, I am sorry but I don’t know whether the last art work is glass or some other material as I didn’t read the label. With the sun shining through the translucent central disc, the colours were absolutely gorgeous. All I needed was the money to purchase it and the garden big enough to install it in.

  4. Hi Margaret, still trying to sign up for comments on your blog…..Happy New Year!!

    • Hi Jennie, I hope you have now got it sorted. Have a great start to the new year.
