On Saturday 27th August 2011 Ronald Rae opened the National Trust for Scotland Threave Sculpture Garden in Dumfries and Galloway. The private view was hosted by the NTS in Threave House where George Thomas the project manager for the new Threave Sculpture Garden talked enthusiastically about the benefits of the project and his future plans for the growth of the Sculpture Garden. He then introduced granite sculptor Ronald Rae who spoke passionately about this new venture at Threave which will be an attraction for visitors and add a new dimension to the Gardens, whilst giving talented sculptors an opportunity to have their work in a beautiful setting and in the public eye. Well done NTS!
This permanent exhibition of figurative works by local sculptors including Lucianne Lassalle, Peter Dowden, Dawn Rhodes, Andy Breen and Willie Wight, is ideally sited in the Formal Garden at Threave. The sculptures are for sale. For further details on the sculptors contact Rupinder Dulay, curator at www.nailfactory.org.uk
