SSS Landmark Arts Centre Exhibition

Surrey Sculpture Society Exhibition was impressive

Halloween Day was eventful for us and we especially remembered the excellent SSS Exhibition at Teddington. The venue was a lofty and spacious Church that was never completed. It is now a stunning venue for art events.  The space and facilities were really good and the SSS team had gone to great lengths to encourage an interest in sculpture and the work of its members.

There was an intriguing portrait sculpture demonstration by Gilbert Wyman, that I had to keep going back to. It was amazing to see Gilbert work so fast and in under two hours he had created a really realistic sculpture of his model. Alison Catchlove was busy making roses and flowers for her forthcoming exhibition at RHS Wisley when they celebrate butterflies in their grand glasshouse. Whilst all this was going on there was a continuously running video of the work of the exhibitors revealing some of the different techniques employed. I particularly liked the demonstration of a beautiful wooden sculpture of a male torso that was created by Seamus Cuddihy using a variety of different tools including a chain saw!

This was a different exhibition from normal as the artists work included their paintings as well as their sculpture. This really made the event special and I have always liked the combination of 2D and 3D work. The whole show was arranged sympathetically and the placing of the different works really was effective in a wonderful setting. It was a pity that the exhibition was only open for two days but it was a very worthwhile visit.
