ForM Sculpture Exhibition

ForM Sculpture Exhibition will showcase selected works from artists who exhibit both nationally and internationally in the beautiful setting of Bangor Castle Walled Garden. The sculptures, inspired by the garden environment, will give visitors a unique experience and the opportunity to see art in a different context.  A visit to Bangor Castle Walled Garden is a real escape and the sculptures enhance this experience even further.

Some of the works are of large scale and compliment the setting whilst other more subtle works will need to be sought out. It is an exhibition to be enjoyed by the whole family.

Some of the works are also for sale. Pick up your free exhibition map in the garden and don’t forget to vote for your favourite sculpture!
