The ForM Sculpture Exhibition opens this Saturday 1 June in Bangor Castle’s Walled Garden. For the whole month of June, the garden will be transformed into an alfresco art gallery when it showcases 42 beautiful sculptures. This event is truly a wonderful opportunity to view these specially created pieces of art, inspired by the garden, whilst enjoying the tranquil surroundings that this beautiful space has to offer.
This juxtaposition of art and nature offers a unique experience and the whole family will enjoy seeking out sculptures located in the garden’s walkways, plants and flowerbeds. Some of the works are striking and of large scale whilst other smaller works will need to be sought out of the greenery. Pick up a map at the gate and see what you can find!
ForM will remain open until 30 June and is free to visit. Some of the sculptures are available to buy. Visitors can pick up a map and catalogue on arrival and are also invited to vote for their favourite sculpture in the ForM Competition.
To celebrate the exhibition, a series of FREE art workshops facilitated by local artists will run in the garden during the month of June. For more information and to book a space, go to:
Bangor Castle Walled Garden is open from 10am – 7.30pm Monday to Thursday, and 10am – 5.30pm at weekends and Bank Holidays.
