Back on the Farm in 2023

Sculpture on the Farm Dungog will return in 2023 to the Williams River Valley cattle property of “Fosterton”.

This exhibition provides opportunity for local, regional and interstate sculptors to showcase their works in the rural environment close to the scenic Hunter Valley town of Dungog, NSW.

The Sculpture on the Farm team of volunteers values the support and engagement of its sculptors and in 2023 will provide financial support towards the transport costs for all sculptors who are finalists in the exhibition.
