Sculpture on Clyde
When: 25th Aug 2018 10:00am - 2nd Sep 2018 5:00pm
Where: Batemans Bay Foreshore
Batemans Bay’s foreshore will be transformed into a vast sculpture park from August 23 – September 2 as international, national and local sculptors exhibit their stunning work during the second Sculpture on Clyde.
This year the unique Acquisitive Prize of $50,000 has attracted widespread attention, including expressions of interest from Japanese and German artists, and from artists who rank in the top 10 in their discipline in Australia. The $5,000 Non-Acquisitive Prize, Emerging Artist Award and several other categories will attract submissions with a variety of themes and forms – all for our interest and enjoyment.
The winning sculptor will have their work permanently displayed for the pleasure of locals and visitors as part of the Batemans Bay Sculpture Walk. The walk will grow incrementally, with the addition of each year’s winning sculpture to the waterfront display. It is this feature which seems to have captured the imagination of sculptors from far and wide.
And how wonderful for local artists to have their work exhibited alongside the world and national masters – as well as be in contention for the top prize!
Sculptures created by school students will also be on display in shopfronts, as Batemans Bay business community comes together to welcome locals and visitors to the town precinct.
This will be an event that will inspire and interest even bigger crowds than attended last year. Save the date!
