The SIG Committee would like to thank all that participated in the 4th annual Sculptures in the Garden exhibition and helping make the event such a success. We are all very pleased with the results of the exhibition and feedback that we are receiving. Over the course of the 2 day event Rosby welcomed over 2,300 people through the gate, sold approximately 50% of all artwork exhibited and raised with the help of the Mudgee Support Group for Guide Dogs over $20,000 for Guide Dogs NSW/ACT.
The event this year has received extensive coverage in the local and wider media with the profile of the event and Mudgee Region receiving a significant boost. We look forward to be able to build upon this platform and grow the event further next year.
Congratulations to our 2014 prize winners. Ulan Murray's work “Acacia" was awarded the Moolarben Acquisition Prize and "Cube Stack" by Alex Scheibner and "Heavy Load" by David Walsh was acquired by the Mid-Western Regional Council as part of their Public Art Collection and all three works will be installed in the coming weeks. Congratulations also to Wendy Black who received the People’s Choice Award for her work “Catch!"
This year was the first year we have had formal acquisition prize and we hope to increase the amount of prize money and types of awards available for next year’s event.
But more importantly please put next year’s exhibition dates in your diary as we will be back bigger and better on the 10th & 11th of October 2015. If you would like to be involved again next year or have any feedback or suggestions on how we could improve the event we would love to hear from you.
Thanks again for your support and we hope to see you again in 2015.
