40 works in stone, wood and clay by this sculptor of the Frink School, who uses methods of improvisation to quarry things inside himself. His carved sculpture is not pre-conceived; forms emerge, partly from pre-occupation with life and landscape, partly from vigorous observation of eminent sitters during intense portrait sessions.

This exhibition and linked evening lecture is tailored to Surrey and Guildford district. New works are exhibited in rare wrinklestone which emerged from the Weald Clay on the Surrey borders. Two new portraits of local people whose contributions to life are significant are exhibited as part of Edgar’s Environment Series of heads. A new Triptych celebrates the parish of Compton and the re-discovery of its clay, and a special sitting at the University will be unveiled to mark this Surrey exhibition.
