Delamore Arts and Sculpture Exhibition takes place annually, every day in May. Based in a traditional Dartmoor agricultural estate house and gardens, the exhibition presents the largest collection of artist's work in one place in the South West. Extensive gardens featuring ancient Rhododendrons and Azaleas are at their best in May creating a vibrant and exciting backdrop to the finest Sculpture exhibition in Devon. Based at Cornwood near Ivybrige, Delamore is right on the edge of beautiful Dartmoor and makes for a fantastic day out.
Delamore by Kieron Williamson
The imposing house was built in 1859 for Ann Praed and George Parker when they were married. The gardens which are rarely open to the public were laid out at a similar time with plantings of newly imported rhododendrons and magnificent trees. Seen at their best during May, they are an ideal backdrop for sculpture large and small, from Henry Moore Foundation prize winners to emerging artists.The light rooms make a superb gallery for paintings and indoor sculptures.
The exhibition takes place annually and is open every day in May. Why not come and browse and perhaps buy one of the many pieces created by local, national, and international artists.
