The trail is an artist led project, delivered in partnership by local artist Phil Dixon and Cockington Court Centre Director, and artist, Marissa Wakefield.

The selection panel received a record number of applications and have now selected 19 artists to design and create sculptures for the trail.

This Sculpture Trail continues to build on the success of previous years. Offering artists the opportunity to apply last year raised the profile of the Trail and has once again seen some terrific artists come forward with their ideas.

We have selected a great mix of styles and materials to feature in the trail. The artists selected will create new work especially for the show, something we are very proud of and illustrates a true commitment of the local artists in this area to celebrate culture in the Bay. I have no doubt that this year’s Trail will further inspire and engage our visitors.”

The successful 19 artists will create their work ready for the launch event on 26 May.

The artists included in this year’s trail are: Helen Bacon, Luci Coles, Malcolm Curley, Louise Hensby Dixon, Phil Dixon, Tony Fagan, Jo Golesworthy, Laura Harvey, Angela Holmes, Terry Hopkins, Stephen Jobe, Paul Pibworth, Allan Poxton, Peter Stride, Vera Stride, Vita Sumeiko, Marissa Wakefield, Tony Weaver and Victoria Westaway.

The Sculpture Trail leads around the grounds of Cockington Court as well as some of the favourite hidden treasures, such as the Walled Art Garden. It extends inside Cockington Court, in the Kitchen Gallery and Manor House, showcasing more examples of all the participating artists’ work. 

The Sculpture Trail had over 8,000 visitors in 2018. Many of the artists receive commissions and sell work in the galleries in Cockington Court thanks to the exposure the trail gives them.
