Entries for the 2024 Exhibition have now closed.
We have had an overwhelming response from artists right across Australia for this year’s event. 100 artists completed their entries with more than 200 artworks nominated. Thank you to all artists who have registered. This year’s event will be the biggest and most diverse we have ever seen.
Staged in the heart of unspoilt nature, Sculpture Bermagui is one of the NSW Far South Coast’s most popular events. It is held over 9 days each March in a charming coastal village surrounded by magnificent forests and splendid beaches.
The exhibition begins on the weekend of Labor Day in Victoria and Canberra Day in ACT. Exhibitors and art lovers mark this event as a highlight on their calendar.
Father and Child – Ross Cameron 2023
The Outdoor sculptures are displayed on the beautiful Dickinson Point headland and foreshore overlooking Horseshoe Bay and Gulaga.
The Indoor sculptures are displayed in the nearby Bermagui Surf Club and in a new space for 2024, the Street Gallery. These 2 galleries provide protection from the elements enabling appreciation of indoor artworks and their more vulnerable nature.
With works coming from across the country and occasionally overseas, we continue to exhibit a high standard of artistic expression, diversity and quality, with a focus on affordability too
The Program includes for 2024 an exciting community event on the second Saturday featuring a light projection show and lantern parade.
Yorke – Mark Niglia 2022
Many artists choose recycled materials and, given Bermagui’s coastal setting, entries often contain a nautical or nature based theme.
The numerous prizes are presented at the opening night celebration at a small event to bring artists, benefactors and community together.
Sculpture Bermagui increases in popularity each year for artists, art lovers and volunteers. It offers a free and exciting exhibition for all ages to indulge in and explore sculpture to their hearts’ content, away from the pressures of daily life.
The prize pool in 2024 will be $45,000 with the main prize significantly boosted to $20,000 for a single sculpture.
Many say this community-based occasion is well worth the drive. It is an excuse for a well-earned break amongst nature and art, with good food and fun at hand, in our coastal village.
