Post by: Anne on February 08, 2018, 07:00:29 PM
9 January - 13 May 2018 at the Grizedale Visitor Centre 2 miles out of Hawkshead, Cumbria.

This exhibition shows the development of Charlie Whinney’s practice over the last ten years from architect – designer to pure sculptural practice and his continued passion for investigating man’s relationship with nature through his work.

Charlie’s 2017 piece Mountains we Made will also be celebrated as the latest addition to Grizedale’s world famous forest sculpture collection. This piece, made of steam bent wood grown in Grizedale, was a co-commission by the Forestry Commission, Lakes Culture and Lakes Alive as a response to the announcement of the World Heritage Status.
