LYME REGIS SCULPTURES 2017

LANGMOOR & LISTER GARDENS
The Town Council has now confirmed that four sculptures will remain in the gardens on a hire charge basis for 2017.  The Lyme Regis Town Council, Mark Hix, Aviva and By the Bay are providing the funds.  LymeForward will act as bankers for the project.
The four retained sculptures are:
'Trapeze' by Clare Trenchard
'Speaking Volumes' by David Parker
'Core Sample Pillar #2' by Isla Chaney and
'Skateboarder' by Greta Berlin 
 
Sadly, Michael Fairfax's 'Ripple' will need to be removed at some point soon. Elsewhere in the gardens Ron Moll's statue of Sir George Somers and the old mosaic bench are permanent features.
 
ACCROSS THE TOWN
There are more sculptures to see.  At the Town Mill currently, Greta Berlin's 'Lost Identity', Dave Holland's 'The Miller', John Calder's 'Two Squares', & 'Wavy Chestnuts', and Cass King's 'Park Bee' all remain.  Behind the church, John Calder's 'Vibe' still clings onto the church fence, and in Drake's Way Isla's 'Scamper' still clings onto the wall. All of these remain until the artist (or the host) feels that time's up. So, for the moment at least, Lyme is really quite busy on the public art front.
 
 
CELEBRATORY EVENTS
All through March, there will be a Sculpture Trail lunch available at By the Bay (not Mondays or Tuesdays), and a Sculpture Trail tea available at the Alexandra Hotel & Retaurant.
 
In May (actual date tbc) a fund-raising sculpture trail auction and dinner will be hosted by Mark Hix at the Hix Oyster and Fish House.
 
There may be more promotional activities to disclose, as the season unfolds, but don't wait for them - why not book a table at BtB (tel 01297 442668) or the Alex (01297 442010) right now!
