Sculpture on the Farm became a permanent feature of the Dungog Festival following its resounding inaugural success last October when 2200 people visited ‘Fosterton’ and viewed 100 sculptures by emerging to eminent sculptors from five States.  Visitors came from far and wide.  The sales reflected their enthusiasm.

We now are warming up to curate and celebrate another big year of Australian sculpture which will adorn the Dungog countryside.

Visitors to Sculpture on the Farm exhibition in 2018

For those of you who missed out last year, let us set 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.

Sculptors the Expressions of Interest Now Open. The deadline for the entries is 6 July 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?

SOF and Community

Sculpture on the Farm Inc has a mission to engage with sculptors, the local Dungog community and the wider public to encourage participation in and understanding of the arts, in particular sculpture.

As a not-for-profit organisation Sculpture on the Farm is committed to making a lasting contribution to the Dungog Shire community.  We donate sculpture for public display in the  villages of Dungog for the community and visitors to our region to enjoy.

Following the SOF2018 ‘Nothin’ but Sky‘ by Braddon Snape was donated to Dungog and is proudly displayed on Dungog’s Hollywood Hill for all to enjoy.

Who will win the SOF2019 Acquisitive Prize of $15,000?
