VERO BEACH, FLA.- Tony Cragg: Sculptures and Works on Paper, an exhibition by the leading contemporary sculptor Sir Tony Cragg is now open at The Gallery at Windsor, Vero Beach, Florida. The exhibition, which runs until May 19, is curated by art historian Dr Jon Wood and includes bronze, steel and glass sculptures, and works on paper in the gallery as well as a large-scale fiberglass sculpture sited in the community’s gardens – on 472 acres of a lush barrier island located between the Indian River and the Atlantic Ocean.

Windsor co-founder and Creative Director for The Gallery at Windsor, the Hon. Hilary M. Weston hosted an exclusive weekend to celebrate the opening. The guest list included Windsor members and leading figures from the international art world, including Dame Julia Peyton-Jones, Dr Arne Ehmann, Matthew Teitelbaum, Christine and Andrew Hall, Brady Roberts, and Brett Sherlock, among others.

For his first visit to Vero Beach Florida, Tony Cragg took part in an hour-long ‘Artist in Conversation’ event with the curator Jon Wood. The conversation was followed by a celebratory dinner hosted by Mrs. Weston on Windsor's Beach Club veranda.

The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue including a foreword by The Hon. Hilary M. Weston, an essay by Jon Wood and an interview with the artist by Hans Ulrich Obrist.

Hilary M. Weston said: ‘The community at Windsor has wholeheartedly embraced Tony Cragg’s exhibition at The Gallery at Windsor. We were so delighted that Tony was able to travel to Vero Beach for the opening of this exciting exhibition that displays a wide range of works, showcasing his extraordinary mastery over a diverse range of materials.’

Tony Cragg represented Britain at the 43rd Venice Biennale in 1988, and the same year was awarded the Turner Prize at Tate in London. He won the prestigious Praemium Imperiale Award, Tokyo in 2007 and the Lifetime Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award in 2017.

He has exhibited extensively in museums worldwide: Tate Gallery, London (1988), Stedelijk Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven and Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen, Düsseldorf (1989), Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh and Musée du Louvre, Paris (2011), Lehmbruck Museum, Duisburg (2013), Von der Heydt-Museum, Wuppertal and Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg (2016) and Boboli Gardens, Florence (2019), and Houghton Hall, Norfolk (2021). He held professorships in the Akademie der Künste in Berlin and Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, where he was director from 2009 to 2013.
