PHYLLIS Court in Henley is hosting an exhibition by the Oxford Sculptors Group until Sunday.

Sculptures are set on the manicured lawns above the riverside, or placed around the main rooms in the clubhouse.

The Oxford Sculptors are a 70-strong group of professional and semi-professional artists who exhibit widely throughout the south of England.

Their work covers all kinds of mediums stone, bronze, bronze resin, ceramic, clay and a great variety of subjects.

A fascination with all aspects of natural life is behind the group’s creativity.


For animal lovers, there are some enchanting little owls by Marie Shepherd and John Penrose has captured the iconic red kite in full sweep of flight.

The artists will be at Phyllis Court, in Phyllis Court Drive, off Marlow Road, tomorrow (Saturday) and on Sunday to discuss their work. For more information visit oxfordsculptors.org
