(Goodwood) Cass sculpture park, for those that have never been, is one of the most amazing spaces I have had the honour of visiting. Set in the beautiful woodlands near Goodwood race tracks, Chichester, and the coast, the sculpture Park shows a diverse range of work, different styles, materials, genres, it is wonderful! There is something for everyone, and if you don’t believe me ask my mother… She likes traditional work, I like modern, we both like work that is interesting, different, and takes skill. Please check out their website, and more posts will follow with greater details of some of my favourite pieces.
What the gallery has to say:
“THE FOUNDATION HAS COMMISSIONED OVER 400 CONTEMPORARY SCULPTURES IN THE PAST 20 YEARS. ALL HAVE BEEN AVAILABLE FOR SALE THROUGH THE FOUNDATION, WITH PROCEEDS GOING DIRECTLY TO THE ARTIST.
Cass Sculpture Foundation is an independent commissioning body dedicated to commissioning new work from emerging and established artists. It was developed as a charitable foundation in 1992 by Wilfred and Jeannette Cass.
The Foundation’s 26 acre grounds are home to an ever-changing display of 80 monumental sculptures, all of which are available for sale with the proceeds going directly to artists.
By combining the best of philanthropic and commercial commissioning models, we are able to continually commission and show new sculpture. To date the Foundation has helped produce over 400 works.”
