Artparks Sculpture Park

The Artparks Sculpture Park is set in a sub tropical wildlife garden on the Channel Island of Guernsey. It shows up to 200 mostly contemporary sculptures every year by approximately 70-80 artists from the United Kingdom and around the world. It was opened by Charles Saumarez Smith CBE, who at the time was the director of the National Portrait Gallery in London. The selection of sculpture changes every year with a grand opening, usually around the third week in May.

Founding and funding

The Artparks Sculpture Park was founded in 1998 by Peter de Sausmarez. Self funding.


Occasionally solo exhibitions are shown. Most of the sculpture is for sale and there are some sculptures that are semi permanent. There are occasional guided tours of the sculptures at certain times of the year.
