Sculpture Bermagui has been renewed! In its eleventh year, from 3 – 13 March 2017 under new guidance, it offers an exciting new format that embraces the night sky, music and more. As well as the usual daylight exhibitions of large sculptures, we are adding guided tours by torchlight, original music composed around several large work, Taiko drumming team, Stonewave, and fire spectacles, all on the Dickinson Point headland overlooking the ocean.
The exhibition of small sculptural works will open with a commemoration of Peter ‘Beetle’ Collins and his work, in the form of a ‘conversation with the artist’, a pictorial history, as well as his latest, unfinished work on display.
This year also features collaborative installations that connect with our local Yuin people, sharing interpretation and stories from elders and long term locals. Future exhibitions will see more of this valuable element on display.
With an increasing list prizes and awards on offer, works are coming from far and wide and this promises to reward the artists and us, the lucky audience that get to experience their inspiration and creativity first hand.
Mark the spot in your calendar. It’s on again, for art’s sake.
