SCULPTURE EXHIBITION – WINDSOR:  A new exhibition about the creation and making of new grotesques for St George’s Chapel opened on Friday 12 September in the Dean’s Cloister (at the exit from the Chapel) in Windsor Castle.

The College of St George has been working in partnership with the City and Guilds London Art School in establishing an imaginative carving programme which is producing exciting new grotesque sculptures for St George’s Chapel. The replacement sculptures aim to reproduce the scale and detail of the original mediaeval conception whilst allowing students the opportunity to be inventive in designing new carvings. The new grotesques replace heavily eroded Victorian grotesques which themselves replaced medieval carvings of unknown design.

The exhibition will be open Monday to Saturday 10am to 4pm until December; an exhibition catalogue will be on sale in the Chapel gift shop.
