W.I Trip to Hauser & Wirth Somerset.

20180907 120736
On Friday 7/09/18 four W.I members  (Margaret, Lyn, Anne & Heather) set off to visit The Hauser & Wirth gardens and art gallery at Bruton.

On arrival, we visited the gardens first and we were amazed by how stunning they were. The gardens had been thoughtfully designed to demonstrate an abundance of colour and texture. The gardens had various grasses added among the flowering perennials, which added movement and enhanced the natural ambience. After over an hour of wandering around the gardens we then ventured off to the restaurant.

Due to the high restaurant prices, we all ordered just starters.Then off to explore the art galleries to admire and be amazed by Alexander Calder's "Kinetic Sculptures" (the forerunner in using "mobiles", as an art form). Also, in the gallery was a fascinating display of some of the artist's personal possessions, like his clogs, chairs, lamp and rug.

It was hard to comprehend the age of the artist's possessions, and art work as they looked modern in their design. After, we then took a brief tour around the shop, but due to the highly priced gifts, only post cards were purchased.

On our return journey back to Martinstown, we reflected together on what an awe inspiring day we had experienced, and how we would be keen to return with other members, hopefully next July.
