A Celebration of Sculpture

John Paddison, who would have been 90 this year, was an iconic member of the British and Welsh Sculpture community. A brilliant student, he won a scholarship to the Royal College and returned to his native Wolverhampton to become Head of Sculpture. He exhibited widely alongside other giants of his day including Professor John Skeaping, Henry Moore, Eric Gill, Barbara Hepworth, Frank Dobson, Glyn Williams and Sir Jacob Epstein. He had a studio in Llanidloes and was a popular figure in the town. He was revered by many of his students and left a serious body of work a selection of which we are delighted to be able to put on public display. This exhibition will compliment more recent work of his past students and those he inspired.
