Art in the Garden at New Hopetoun Gardens

The Art in the Garden exhibition, at New Hopetoun Gardens near Edinburgh, runs until the end of August 2018.

The exhibition showcases the work of local artists, such as Maple Tree by Raymond Douglas.

I really liked the Trout and Medieval Heron circular mosaics by Joy Parker.

One of my favourite pieces was Rosie Nixon’s Salmon Shirley Poppy. I liked the semi-transparency and being able to look through the piece from both sides.

Oscar the Octpopus by Shona Jonstone was cute.

As was Strix the Barn Owl by Joy Parker.

There are lots of large flower sculptures.

The slate stacking style DNA of a Dancer by James Parker reminded me of water features I’ve seen at Logan Botanic Gardens and Threave Gardens in Dumfries and Galloway. I assume that the water features were also by James Parker.

I really enjoyed Art in Garden at New Hopetoun Gardens. The Garden is open every day from 10am to 4.30pm. The cafe looked nice, with views over the garden and some outside seating.
