The Sculpture Park was created by Eddie Powell over a decade ago, utilising 10 acres of undeveloped Surrey land which he lovingly and painstakingly transformed into the enchanting and magical park it is today. With over 600 pieces of 20th Century, Modern and Contemporary Sculpture on display and for sale, from more than 150 renowned local and nationwide sculptors, the Sculpture Park is both a unique outdoor gallery for serious art collectors and art lovers, as well as an educational and fun day out for all the family.
Taking advantage of the natural contours of the undulating Surrey Hills in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Eddie has created the perfect haven for the display of sculpture, with paths meandering through natural woodland and areas of open meadow, full of wild flowers and enhanced by 3 wildlife inhabited lakes fed by natural streams. This is a constantly evolving environment where no two visits are the same.
Eddie Powell, the owner and Curator of The Sculpture Park, is one of the U.K.’s leading art experts. With a 1st class Honours degree in Photography and Sculpture and near 50 year career as an entrepreneur excelling in the sale and understanding of paintings, sculpture, prints and photography, Eddie is the perfect advisor in buying art. One renowned sculptor described him as ‘an astute and energetic businessman with a passion, an art school background, an extensive knowledge of sculpture – and a visionary eye’
As well as being able to identify and nurture the best emerging sculptors, earning him the respect of the art world including the world’s leading auctioneers of Sculpture and Design for the House and Garden: Summer’s Place, so much so they are currently promoting the sale of ‘Eddie’s Eye’ The Eddie Powell Collection of Modern and Contemporary Sculpture, Eddie is also a sculptor in his own right. Under the pseudonym of Wilfred Pritchard, Eddie has created many notable pieces including a popular dynasty of skeletal figures in a variety of action positions, some of which are now in public collections worldwide
