We’ve just confirmed that sculptor Alexandra Beale will exhibit alongside artist Lorrie Whittington at the first Writers’ Retreat weekend that’s happening at Cobnor, near Chichester, over August Bank Holiday.
Alexandra’s work includes private commissions, ranging from full size statuary and garden water features to portrait heads and composition pieces. Her work portrays a unique sensitivity to the energy for life, whether in representative, figurative or abstract formation, fulfilling a desire to create decorative, elegant works of art. A large number of the sculptures are bronze or bronze resin limited editions.
Like many of our contributors, Alexandra lives in West Sussex where she has had a studio added to the family home and her work can be viewed by appointment. She has been an inspiration to many others through her teaching groups near Chichester and continues to exhibit widely in London and the South of England, including the following galleries and garden events:
- Holy Trinity Art and Crafts Guild – Sloane Square
- Atrium Gallery – Bournemouth University
- The Wimbledon Fine Arts Gallery
- The Old Bakehouse – Fishbourne, West Sussex
- Langham Fine Arts – Suffolk
- Prestigious garden shows such as: Chelsea, Hampton Court, Stansted, West Dean, Parham and The Old Town Hall Chelsea
