Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood are delighted to be sponsoring an installation at the Thelma Hulbert Gallery in Honiton by the internationally renowned artist Luke Jerram to create Harrison's Garden - an art installation featuring 1,000 clocks.

The Thelma Hulbert Gallery successfully defeated other United Kingdom venues to win the chance to work with Luke Jerram for this year's Museums at Night festival, who has created a 'garden of time'. Winding pathways will draw visitors through the shifting landscape. Each area of the installation will sound different. The public will recognise some of the clocks from their home and their past. The cacophony of clock sounds will heighten the visitor's awareness of time passing.

The installation will be open from Tuesday, 27th October 2015 until Saturday, 31st October 2015 from 10:00am until 8:00pm each day, except Saturday when the display will close at 10:00pm.

We hold regular valuation days at the gallery. Our antique clock expert, Leigh Extence , will be undertaking clock valuations from 11:00am-1:00pm on Thursday, 29th October 2015 and will give an informal talk relating to clocks in art at the end of the valuation session. As usual, the valuation event will be free.
