Collection of works by renowned sculptor Andrew Logan, founder of the famous Alternative Miss World contest, international artist extraordinaire. Andrew Logan belongs to a unique school of English eccentrics. One of Britain's principal sculptural artists, he challenges convention, mixes media and plays with our artisic values. Andrew Logan's work is the art of popular poetry and metropolitan glamour. It is an art which resounds with the exuberant excess of a Busby Berkeley musical. It would be decadent if it were not so cheerful. As it is, it provides the sort of glamorous moment or celebration for which many of us harbour unspoken longings. A Logan extravaganza is simultaneously absurd, funny and moving. Since its beginnings, Logan's work has depended on the inventive use of whatever was to hand. With flair and fantasy he transformed real objects into their new and different versions. His nature reserve includes fauna, flora, planets and gods. His love of travel provides the bases for several series of work. From his fame as the founder of the Alternative Miss World (started in 1972 and now an institution.) to his work in the National Portrait Gallery. plus many international exhibitions the collection of his work at the Andrew Logan Museum of Sculpture (ALMS) in Berriew is not to be missed.
