CALL FOR WORKS
For Immediate Release May 2015
One of the largest sculpture exhibitions in rural NSW, Sculptures in the Garden 2015 has issued an open call for submissions from artists.
Held over Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 October 2015, the not for profit outdoor exhibition features local, regional, Sydney and interstate artists.
Event organizer, Amber Norton-Knight, says Sculptures in the Garden 2015 provides artists a unique avenue to exhibit their works.
“Sculptures in the Garden 2015 is set in beautiful rural surroundings within a private garden and vineyard in Mudgee, NSW,” Amber said.
“We anticipate more than 3,000 visitors will attend the exhibition over the weekend, providing huge exposure for the artists
“It’s also very likely that they will sell their work. Last year, Sculptures in the Garden displayed over 270 sculptures and more than 50% were sold.”
Proceeds from the weekend exhibition will go to a local arts initiative to develop a sculpture walk in Mudgee’s Lawson Park.
“This year, Mid-Western Regional Council will be purchasing sculptures from the exhibition up to the value of $11,000. The acquired work/s will be part of the Mid Western Regional Council public art plan,” Amber said.
Other prizes will be bestowed upon artists in the form of a People’s Choice Award and $5,000 Acquisition Prize. The winning acquisition will be part of Mid-Western Regional Councils public art collection.
The Mudgee Support Group of Guide Dogs NSW/ACT will be assisting throughout the 2-days running the gate and providing catering for the event.
Submissions for Sculptures in the Garden 2015 are now open. The submissions deadline is Friday 11th September 2015. Entry forms and more information can be found on the Sculptures in the Garden website; www.sculpturesinthegarden.com.au.
