Outsider Art

07Aug16

More art.

This time in the grounds of Houghton Hall, built for the first British Prime Minister, Sir Robert Walpole and pleasingly only a short distance from where Mrs Weir and I spend our weekends (for clarification it’s also where we spend our weeks).

Now owned by the 7th Marquess of Cholmondeley (David to his friends), the Hall and its surrounding parkland are home to a number of pieces of contemporary sculpture from the likes of Rachel Whiteread, Richard Long, Phillip King, Zhan Wang and James Turrell.

Highlight of what’s on show is still Skyspace by James Turrell which I absolutely adored on my first visit. And I’m glad to find that on our return visit my love for it remains undiminished.
