Bringing together the work of more than 120 artists using a wide range of media, these works of art represent the rich, diverse character of Irish and International contemporary sculpture. From the smallest, most intricate ceramic works to stone sculptures of monumental scale, visitors to the exhibition will be enriched by the experience of viewing such inspiring works in one location. The exhibition runs from Thursday 7th Sept to Fri 13th Oct. Great opportunities to sketch the exhibited Sculptures and many intriguing subjects in the National Botanic Gardens of Ireland.
