For those of you who missed out last year, let us carve out the scene. The galleries, gardens and paddocks beamed with a splendid display of sculptural delights at every turn. The young, the old, those from afar and close by, were treated to a hundred works from well known local Hunter Valley artists as well as sculptors from right up and down the eastern seaboard, from Australia’s renowned artists and exciting talent from emerging sculptors. Strolling the paddocks, sipping a coffee or a cool drink, it was a wonderful way to take in the creative talents of the artists.
For all the sculptors out there, get yourselves into the studio, off to the foundry, fire up those kilns, don your welding masks, hammers and tongs at the ready…. and start making. Expressions of Interest Now Open. The deadline for applications is 20 May 2019. This is your chance to exhibit in a huge open-air gallery in idyllic pastoral surrounds.
Paddocks freshly mown will become home for the monumental works, the picturesque and heavenly scented gardens will be home for smaller outdoor works and the large Main House Gallery shows off the indoor works to their best. Could it be the Tractor Shed that provides that large space for a surprise feature work?
