Gathering Silence

Bangor Castle Walled Garden
Free during opening hours

Gathering Silence showcases new work by artists Helen Hanse and Owen Crawford.

Inspired by exhibiting in the unique and beautiful environment of the Walled Garden, the sculptures in stone and wood reflect a gathering of experience, of quiet moments and the changing seasons.

The process of carving to create in stone and wood is time worn and allows for the alliance of story and word in the careful definition of these materials. Stories often precede and germinate the carving yet the materials seem always to provide a new telling of whatever has to be said.
