Eve Shepherd A.R.B.S, S.P.S can only be described as unique in the world of modern
sculptors. Compared by some with the great Rodin, she is predicted to be "one of the
greatest artists of our time" by Professor Anthony Stone former President of the Society
of Portrait Sculptors.
Using traditional mediums and methods with a contemporary twist, Eve's consistent
ability to produce works, which though often challenging to the viewer, portray an
exquisite sensitivity and honesty rarely seen in contemporary sculpture. Her work has
the power to capture emotion and move the immoveable. The energy, passion and
strength of feeling she invests in to each piece of work can not only be seen but is felt by
For the first time showing solely outdoors, Eve will be debuting several larger
sculptures. Set in a walled garden behind a library, this exquisite venue has a feel and the
understated magic of a secret garden. Turrill Sculpture Garden is located within
Summertown, a lovely area within the wonderfully timeless city of Oxford.
Notes for Editors:
The Turrill Sculpture Garden has been in existence behind the Summertown Library, in South Parade, Oxford, since
2000. In a beautiful space in a walled garden it hosts a constantly changing series of sculpture exhibitions ranging
from beginners to internationally renowned sculptors; in most years there are about six exhibitions. It is believed to be
the only place in the UK where the public can see outdoor changing sculpture exhibitions at no cost.
The garden is open to the public during Library opening hours.
