The Garden Gallery’s Summer Exhibition 2016 takes as its theme Footprints on the Sands of Time (from A Psalm of Life by

H. W. Longfellow). Charlotte Mayer is a sculptor who will undoubtedly leave footprints on the sands of time. Born in Prague

in 1929 she came to England with her mother just before war broke out ten years later. Charlotte has exhibited at The Garden

Gallery for over 20 years. During this time a growing number of visitors to the gallery have become loyal fans of her work,

and look forward each year to enjoying her sculptures and the opportunity to appreciate her skill as an artist, the depth of her

imagination and her exceptionally high standards of craftsmanship.

This summer The Garden Gallery is proud to exhibit a new collection of sculptures by Charlotte Mayer, whose

work is as fresh, compelling and vibrant as ever.

Charlotte Mayer studied at Goldsmith's College and the Royal College of Art in London. Her work is represented in both

corporate and institutional collections, and private collections in Europe, Japan and the USA. Public commissions include

work for Banque Paribas in London.

"I believe that a sculpture should speak for itself. It should need no verbal description.

A title may give a hint to the viewer of what was in the sculptor's mind”.

Around 50 sculptors and ceramic artists, some new to the gallery, will also exhibit their work in the exhibition,

alongside the special focus on Charlotte Mayer. The majority of pieces will be shown in the gallery's lovely garden.

The exhibition will open on Saturday 14 May (Private View 11 - 5) and run until 9 July on Thursdays, Fridays and

Saturdays, 11 - 5, or by arrangement.
