What is the history of Hannah Peschar Sculpture Garden to the present day?
The Hannah Peschar Sculpture Garden was the brainchild of owner and original curator over 35 years ago. Peschar and her landscape-designer husband Anthony Paul bought the land and property over 40 years ago - where Paul began to make his mark on the extraordinary landscape. The grounds that surround their 15th century cottage have been extensively redeveloped over the past 40 years - creating a lush, controlled wildness.
The annual sculpture exhibition proudly shows 150-200 pieces each year by over 50 artists, traveling across Europe to exhibit their work. The exhibition is constantly changing, and the curators chose a large selection of new pieces each year to keep the collection fresh and exciting.
