Up the Garden Path - Sculpture Exhibition

When: 13th Oct 2017 9:00am - 29th Oct 2017 4:00pm

Where: Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Gardens

Official Opening: Friday 13th October, 6:00pm

Times: 13 to 29 October, Wednesday to Sunday 9am to 4pm

Up the Garden Path will showcase local artworks in the picturesque setting of Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Gardens.

Curated by Eurobodalla artist Andrea Warren, the exhibition will feature 57 sculptures by 23 artists, both indoors and outdoors at the Gardens.

Fittingly, all the works are inspired by nature. They are created from a diverse range of materials - from stone, timber and bronze to the more delicate paper and felt - and the majority of works will be for sale.

The exhibition is part of a wider plan to diversify Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Gardens and cement it as one of the best in Australia. Depending on its initial success, Up the Garden Path will be held either annually or biennially.

Native Plant Paper Sculpture Workshop
The Gardens' first ever 'artist in residence' Mandy Hillson will host a one-and-a-half day Native Plant Paper Sculpture Workshop as part of Up the Garden Path on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 October.

Participants will learn about suitable native plants for paper making, processing native fibres, and transforming them into handmade paper. The paper will then be molded into sculptural form.

Workshop cost is $120 per participant.
