Brewin Dolphin has revealed the names of the four renowned artists who will feature on its show garden at this year’s RHS Chatsworth Flower Show.
The Brewin Dolphin Artists’ Garden will feature prominent Paris-based Armenian ceramicist Gregory Tchalikian (also known as Tzarig), specialist screen printer Hannah McVicar, figurative painter Maeve O’Loughlin, and basket maker and sculptor Maggie Cooper. All four artists are inspired by nature and use the natural world in all its forms to nurture and craft their art.
Skilled craftsmanship and fine artistry are the themes for Brewin Dolphin’s garden at this year’s RHS Chatsworth Flower Show. The space will be transformed into a distinctive feature-garden which will combine the finest horticulture with exciting, interactive art demonstrations, featuring the above four artists creating their wares on the garden every day.
Billed as a place of calm, rest and inspiration, ‘The Brewin Dolphin Artists’ Garden’ will embody a traditional artisan cottage garden, complete with a structured open courtyard, Herbaceous borders, a variety of traditional plants, such as Salix, Geranium, Lovage and Topiary, Hornbeam and Carpinus, and an Apothecary herbal garden in the front corner to promote wellbeing.
Returning as the creative force behind this year’s Brewin Dolphin garden will be multi award-winning garden designer Paul Hervey-Brookes. Paul’s Brewin Dolphin Installation at last year’s RHS Chatsworth Flower Show won the People’s Choice Award.
“The idea is to create a space which celebrates craftsmanship and an appreciation of skills. You value the work of an artisan ceramicist, or a willow-basket maker, as they have invested their skills and time. And so through this garden of makers we will also celebrate the skill and value of those caring for and nurturing our family’s wealth, especially in uncertain times.”
The RHS Chatsworth Flower Show will run from 5-9th June 2019 at the Chatsworth Estate, Derbyshire. For more information and to book tickets, visit: www.rhs.org.uk
