In the stunning Lambrigg garden, mature deciduous trees sweep down towards the Murrumbidgee River, framing a garden that blends intimate formal spaces with wider views and provides a superb setting for sculpture.

Works of varying scale will create a dialogue with the spaces surrounding them, suiting both large and small gardens and corporate collections, says curator Neil Hobbs.

Lambrigg is on Tidbinbilla Road, Tharwa. Sculpture in the Garden is on the weekend of 19-20 October, 10am to 4.30pm. Entry is $15 (under 18 free) Pay on the day, prebook online at opengarden.org.au or call (03) 5424 8061. The event will support Boundless Canberra and Kids Cancer Centre.
