Jupiter Artland

Courtesy of Frances Dryburgh

On the 17th September ,30 Friends travelled to Jupiter Artland, near Edinburgh. This is a sculpture park opened ten years ago in a wooded estate. As we wandered through the trees, we discovered contemporary sculptures by well known, and not so well known, artists. The sculptures vary from a giant shoe made from pots and pans, to a heart made from plastic pottery, to a shed built from dry stonewalls and even a giant spider’s web. A most striking cast iron sculpture is this giant rifle leaning on a tree, which our chairman is inspecting.
Thanks to Marion Maudsley for her careful arrangements on the day.
