Stroud’s Museum in the Park hosted the launch evening for the sculpture show by Gloucestershire Artist, Natasha Houseago, which runs until November 5th.
Natasha carves forms from trees that have fallen in nature. Ash is her favourite wood to work in using a mixture of power and hand tools. She has worked and sold her pieces nationally and internationally. Having lived in Stroud at one time some of her works are made from wood from Stratford Park.
‘”I’ve had a long connection with the Museum in the Park – over 10 years ago I carved the Monkey Puzzler sculpture for the grounds. Also, an Aztec-inspired owl which is still up on a tree stump. Also in the exhibition are sculptures made from fallen trees from Stratford Park,” said Natasha.
On October 15th Natasha and other artists will take part in Everybody Draw at the museum from 2-4pm where Natasha will be making charcoal for drawing. On Sunday, October 22nd Natasha will be working at the museum demonstrating her carving.
