~ The celebrated artist’s muse confirmed to open this year’s event ~
Regional Australia’s premier sculpture exhibition, Sculptures in the Garden is excited to announce that Wendy Whiteley has been confirmed to open this year’s event.
Whiteley, who is well known for her contribution to the Arts and her secret garden in Sydney’s Lavender Bay, will be involved in the two-day event for the first time.
Past events have seen Her Excellency, Dame Marie Bashir, Lord Mayor Clover Moore, renowned sculptor, Paul Selwood and respected art scholar, Edmund Capon open the event and having Wendy Whiteley assigned to the honours this year will again bring both prestige and interest to the exhibition.
Sculptures in the Garden Founder, Kay Norton-Knight has said, “We are absolutely thrilled to have Wendy Whiteley open this year’s event. Wendy is renowned and well respected in the art world and having her involved is a real feat.”
“Since submissions opened last month, we have had some amazing talent enter work and I think Wendy will be really impressed with the quality and variety of the sculptures on display,” Norton-Knight added.
Submissions are being accepted until Friday 7th September with judging to take place by a selection committee on 5th October and winners to be announced at the opening of the event on Saturday 6th October.
The not-for-profit event raises funds for the local branch of Guide Dogs NSW/ACT. Each year SIG contributes funds to acquire works for the Mudgee region’s public sculpture collection.
