Painswick takes on artistic roles

The Painswick Rococo Garden is holding an art festival throughout August, with more than 30 pieces on display throughout the 4ha garden in Gloucestershire.

The Painswick Garden Trust asked five artists to exhibit four pieces each and form a judging panel for a competition for the remaining six places. Designs range from a bronze figure swinging through the air to delicate ceramic leaves floating in the pond.

The festival explores the theme of: "Texture, form and light." Art in the Garden 2011 has also made a call for entries. The theme will be: "Parabola - shadows on the breeze, echoes in the wood."
