Clare Trenchard sculpture "Trapeze" at Lyme Regis ArtsFest Sculpture TrailCelebrate the Lyme Regis Sculpture Trail

Following the success of the Lyme Regis Sculpture Trail during 2016 ArtsFest, there will be a continued presence of public art in Langmoor Gardens and beyond in 2017.  So why not enjoy a stroll with friends, family or fellow art lovers to discover these hidden gems?  Then drop into By the Bay for a delicious 2 course lunch for just £12.95.

Yes – that’s right.  We’re offering a great value 2 course lunch for just £12.95 throughout March.

We love quirky art at By the Bay and are delighted to support this wonderful community project featuring work by Clare Trenchard, David Parker, Greta Berlin, Isla Chaney, Ron Moll and John Calder.

John, who curated the original, highly successful sculpture trail as part of Lyme Regis ArtsFest, has been instrumental in arranging the continued presence of public art in the town for the coming year.  With support for the Town Council and additional funding from By the Bay and Hix Restaurants (both members of Lyme Regis Business Group), art lovers will be able to enjoy the following sculptures in addition to the much-loved mosaic bench below the north entrance of the gardens:

Trapeze by Clare Trenchard (to the west of the crazy golf course)

Speaking Volumes by David Parker (below the Woodland Walk)

Skateboarder by Greta Berlin (to the east of the Woodland Walk)

Core Sample Pillar by Isla Chaney (near the North Entrance)

Sir George Somers by Ron Moll (also below the Woodland Walk)

And, of course there are even more sculptures to see elsewhere in Lyme Regis.  The Town Mill is currently showing Greta Berlin’s ‘Lost Identity’, Dave Holland’s ‘The Miller’, ‘Two Squares’ and ‘Wavy Chestnuts’ by John Calder as well as ‘Park Bee’ by Cass King.  Behind St Michael’s Church, John’s ‘Vibe’ still clings to the fence and in Drake’s Way, Isla’s ‘Scamper’ holders firm.  Check out the latest news about public art in Lyme Regis HERE and don’t forget to add your support to this deserving community project.
