A Visit to The Yorkshire Sculpture Park

Last night we were privileged to be invited to The Yorkshire Sculpture Park for the opening and a dinner for Ursula Von Rydingsvard. She is an American Sculptor who makes extraordinary sculptures from wood which are sometimes converted into bronze and other materials. At this exhibition she was showing quite large and extremely complicated items that were as dramatic as they were  quite stunning.  The Yorkshire Sculpture Park is quite magnificent and worth a visit at any time. It is situated of the M1 close to Wakefield in West Yorkshire. It is set in 500 acres of beautiful historic parkland.It has work by Henry Moore. Barbara Hepworth, Anthony Gormley,Elizabeth Fink etc etc. It also has a fantastic shop with many products relating to artists showing in the museum.
