After Open Studios Green Genie went on to be displayed at various venues.
In 2010 he finished all four elements in time for the exhibition in January 2011 inside the grounds of Wellingborough’s Castle Theatre, this is the only time all four sculptures have been exhibited together
The exhibition finished in April, Green Genie, Poseidon and Vulcan went on to Woburn Abbey sculpture park to take part in the Artbeat exhibition after the exhibition He then took only Green Genie and Vulcan to Althrop House to be on display in their sculpture exhibition
From 2015 Green Genie, Poseidon and Vulcan have been on display at Wollaston museum’s gardens. Green Genie became 10 years old in 2017 and it’s still as popular with the public as the first day it was on display
