Set within the Wiltshire home of owner Richard Atkinson-Willes, Talos Gallery exhibits beautiful contemporary bronze sculpture.
The Talos Foundry has cast the work of established sculptors for decades, producing exceptional bronze sculptures that become part of private, national and international collections. Richard decided to open the Talos Gallery and offer people the unique opportunity to take in these works of art, before they’re sent away.
Many exhibits in the gallery will be accompanied by their own moulds, working drawings and photographs of the creative processes behind them. Visitors will have the opportunity to learn about the ancient history of the ‘lost wax’ casting method, which is still used to cast sculptures at the foundry today.
Talos Gallery is based at Broads Green Farm in Heddington near Calne, where old dairy buildings have been stripped back to reveal cobbled floors, original elm trusses and antique joinery. It’s the perfect space to view spectacular work made from simple material.
The Gallery will be completed in the summer of 2021 and we will be celebrating with a Summer Opening event, showcasing the work of Emma Mac Dermott.
