The annual “Richard Scott Sculpture @ Ballymaloe” opened at Ballymaloe House, Shanagarry, Co. Cork on Wednesday 21st June 2017. It was a beautiful summers evening for the opening.
Fifty five sculptures, mainly stone and some bronze are on show in the park lands of Ballymaloe. I have two new works on show, Fucus (Bladderwrack) II and Beech Nut III. I’m in great company, other exhibitors are Jason Ellis, Stephen Burke, Eileen MacDonagh, Sonia Caldwell, Martha Redmond Herrity, Mel French, Eugene o’Malley to name a few and also my fellow 9 Stone Artists, Michelle Byrne and Gwen Wilkinson. It was great to reconnect with other stone people and sculptors and I was very pleased to meet Niall Kavanagh of McKeon Stone (the sponsor of the exhibition).
Well done to Richard Scott for getting a great show together. It is on for the entire summer and Richard will be giving a guided tour of the works every Tuesday and Thursday at 6.00pm .

Martin, your bladderwrack makes me want to weep it is so beautiful and I’d love to be there to feel it’s wonderful curves and smoothness. You really have found your niche in life and to have visited you in your home and workshop was a great pleasure.
Best wishes to you and Kathy from Milly. ( Pete’s Mum).
