‘Out of the Wood’ at the Bleddfa Centre’s apple orchard is a contemporary sculpture exhibition bringing together 13 invited artists from Wales and England. The premise of the exhibition is a simple one – each participating artist was given a length of birch cordwood (4 feet long x 4 inches diameter) to utilize as they felt appropriate after visiting not only the exhibition site but also the source of the donated birch – the nearby Castlering Wood.
The resulting exhibition features a diverse and exciting collection of contemporary artworks by artists interested in the possibilities of making sculpture from a singular unit of wood as the start point.
The exhibition was made possible by the Knighton Tree Allotments Trust who kindly donated the birch cordwood.
