This weekend Mudgee will see the return of Sculptures in the Garden, one of the largest sculpture exhibitions in rural NSW, showcasing the very best in local, regional and interstate artists.
Now in its 7th year, Sculptures in the Garden has become one of the region’s leading cultural events, attracting thousands of visitors who get to take in a fascinating collection of artworks amongst the picturesque surroundings at Rosby’s vineyard.
Paul Selwood, one of Australia’s finest abstract sculptors, will officially open the exhibition where there will be works by some of Australia’s most recognised artists including Mark Titmarsh, VIVID exhibitor Alan Rose, Sculpture By The Sea exhibitors Paul Selwood, John Fitzmaurice and Hui Selwood as well as local artist and former Sculpture By The Sea exhibitor Nigel White.
One of the highlights of the exhibition will be a discussion panel hosted by Nick Lowther, Chief of Staff at ABC Dubbo taking a seat with Paul and Nigel White, discussing how public art can shape a country town.
Other highlights will include live music in the garden from Matt Boylan-Smith, garden walks, art tours, Guide Dog puppy demonstrations, Rosby Wine Bar, and the return of the popular Kids Sculpture exhibition.
Sculptures in the Garden continues to grow in popularity year after year. It gives visitors the opportunity to explore the stunning gardens at Rosby and enjoy Mudgee wine and regional produce, all while witnessing some breathtaking artistic talent.
All gate proceeds and catering revenue go to the Mudgee Support Group of Guide Dogs NSW/ACT. Further proceeds from the weekend exhibition go towards a local arts initiative to create the public art sculpture walk in Mudgee’s Lawson Park.
