About Us

Mission

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 community. Following each exhibition SOF donates sculpture for public display to Dungog for the enjoyment of the community and visitors to our region.

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.

The SOF2019 Acquisitive Prize Theatre of the Shadow by Newcastle artist Peter Tilley has been donated to Dungog Shire Council for future public display. An additional work by Bob Teasdale, Entwined has been donated to the Dungog Common on the outskirts of town, just near the new amenities facility. Gavin Vitullo recently completed a magnificent ephemeral work in the Dungog Common, A Thought is a Ripple is there for you to discover. This initiative was sponsored by Sculpture on the Farm with the support of Create NSW.

Background

Dream became reality when Philippa Graham founded the not-for-profit community driven Sculpture on the Farm Inc in 2018. Committed to creating projects that build and nurture community, Philippa gathered a band of Dungog Shire and Sydney friends to deliver the inaugural exhibition on the 2018 October long weekend.

On their cattle property “Fosterton”, Philippa and her husband John, welcomed more than 2000 visitors so that they could take in the splendour of sculpture in a surreal rural landscape.

Sculptors, sightseers, sponsors and sales flourished at “Fosterton”, both in 2018 and 2019. Past sculptures can be seen here.

Now, preparations are in place for SOF2021 to showcase our Australian sculptors, this year in both the paddocks and gardens of “Fosterton” and in the galleries of Dungog’s main street.

We hope that you will take with you an enduring and increased appreciation of the importance of sculpture in the public domain and enjoy the amazing rural scenery and the unique township of Dungog.
