Since 2017 we have held a competiton to find an artwork to be shown during Art in the Garden on what we are calling the Boarhunt 4th Plinth, an unsafe oak tree that had to be felled. The competition is open for artists and makers, including students, working in all mediums, from Hampshire and the surrounding counties.
Our first winner was Abigail Day, showing her concrete and wax sculpture in 2018.
Next in 2019 was Lisa Traxler with her ‘Disruptive Light Apparatus’, utilising a paper composite more commonly used in the construction industry.
We had chosen Rosie Wesley as our 2020 winner, but as we couldn’t hold Art in the Garden last year we hope to show her work in 2021, if the event can go ahead this year.
