exhibitions and installations- current and recent


 with the Yorkshire Sculptors Group 
at Wentworth Castle Gardens and Cannon Hall Museum & Gardens, 
July 1st – October 31st. 
see below for images  from RHS Harlow Carr last year as this is a touring exhibition.
I am showing across both sites, so from me you will see Pernicious, Red Fingerprint (WCG) and Squeezed (CH).  Both sites are geographically close to each other, free entry and really beautiful places to visit in South Yorkshire.

OPEN STUDIOS 2021 (part of Hebden Bridge Open Studios 2021)
all welcome – please follow this link for opening times and address :
July 9 – 11 AND October 1-3 , 2021


I exhibited  3 installations as part of the exhibition Invasive Species, at RHS Harlow Carr , Harrogate. The work of 15 members of the Yorkshire Sculptors Group are installed throughout the gardens . Until January 3, 2021.

“Pernicious”– approx 40 glazed ceramic pieces installed in a rhodendendron copse . Each piece is holds multiple fingerprints , tiny pieces of  squeezed clay- the whole piece has a dead, bone like quality contrasting with the appearance of growing and organic.











“Squeezed” is a cluster of  glazed ceramic pieces hang in a rhodendendron tree. Layers of fleshy, bloody stains coated with slippery shiny transparent glaze give the cluster an eviscerated disturbing appearance. Each small piece is made by forcefully squeezing clay to create individual hand casts.


“We Only Print in Blood Red” is an instalation of 8 glazed ceramic pieces, wired into a tree. Each piece has hundreds of tiny squeezed fingerprints attached. The tree looks like it has been invaded, infested , or has an angry looking rash – blurring the distinction between tree and human sickness and disease.





Due to corona virus, my exhibition “Confinement” , with Frances Earnshaw and Helen Sargeant at Artsmill, Hebden Bridge, has been postponed.

I am currently collecting photos of bras for my Bra Rifle Range work , (see selected works) . Please email images to sally@sallybarker.org  (not being worn plse!)
