A sculpture of four dancing human forms from tin and copper will also be on display at the event, created by Sue Freeborough, from Waterlooville.

Mottisfont Open aims to celebrate local talent in a variety of different materials and each of the featured artists have been selected for their creative flair.

Louise Govier, Mottisfont’s visitor experience and communities manager, said: ‘The judges were very impressed by the quality and range of the works submitted, and we’ve ended up with a really varied show.

‘There’s everything from abstract work to finely detailed nature painting, plus of course some lovely views of Mottisfont itself.’

The exhibition runs from October 15 to 30, and on October 29 members of the public will have the chance to get creative during an artist-led workshop, where participants will create a sculpture.
