Sculpture Bermagui acknowledges the people of the Yuin nation, first custodians of this land we share, and show our respect for their elders past, present and future.

 

About

At the point closest to the Continental Shelf, the edge of our island, an annual exhibition of creativity is hosted by the small and unspoilt village of Bermagui, on the far south coast of NSW. In this magnificent setting of forests, fields, beaches and headlands, Sculpture Bermagui gathers sculptural works from established, renowned artists alongside those of emerging talent for the enjoyment of our community and the many visitors it attracts.

On the beautiful Dickinson Point headland and along Horseshoe Bay foreshore, the Outdoor sculptures merge and contrast with views of ocean and mountains, inspiring and at times confronting, amongst the elements. The equally diverse Indoor exhibition is held daily in the modern Community Centre, come rain or shine.

In 2017, we marked the eleventh year of an event which has helped place Bermagui firmly on the art world map, involving as it does, high profile and yet to be recognised visiting and local sculptors. The success of Sculpture Bermagui is due to the artists, the audience and the many individuals, businesses and organisations who contribute their invaluable support and participation.

This uniquely placed exhibition is moving forward with a passion for visual arts and the promotion of cultural growth. Perhaps you could consider some involvement with this significant event yourself?

Sculpture Bermagui Outdoor exhibition also embraces the night sky with tours by torch, music, video, conversations and fire spectacles, all on the superb headland overlooking the ocean.

This regional event aims to bring Bermagui alive with new intensity and stimulation through multidimensional works of imagination and skill.

Mark it in your calendar. It’s on again Friday 9th to Sunday 18th March 2018, for art’s sake.
