Sladmore’s origins in a breathing menagerie, evolved to host both live and bronze creatures by the 1960s and this tradition continues today over fifty years later in our Contemporary, Modern and Antique sculpture collections. A renewed appreciation for the simplicity these animals bring to our lives in times of upheaval, has inspired this exhibition, a selection of pieces from our three centuries of sculpture. The sculptures depict different styles from the faithfully realistic, to the impressionists, to the contemporary, to the independent. Animals on show will include dogs, cats, sheep, cows, horses, rabbits, rats and chameleons.
