Art in our community… what is it all about?

Each year, Sculpture Bermagui, a top 5 regional flagship event in SE NSW, presents art for thousands of locals and visitors to the Sapphire Coast, providing the opportunity for art lovers and the curious to immerse themselves in some great art and see for themselves.

This well respected event showcases the skill and imagination of established and renowned artists and is a proven launching pad for emerging talent from all over Australia and beyond.

Of international standard, award winning sculptors such as Jesse Grahame, Michael Purdy and Michael Le Grand have been exhibited. From Bermagui to New York is not a big step.

Curatorial Director, Pauline Balos, said “I feel honoured that our event has gained recognition. We encourage and showcase artists of all levels and to me that is very exciting”

“Bermagui is a lovely friendly town with much to offer.” Exhibition Director, Paul Payten, said. “To have excellence in sculpture here really makes a visit worthwhile. Come and choose your Indoor or Outdoor favourite.”

“The success of Sculpture Bermagui is due to the many volunteers in our community, seizing the opportunity to get up close and personal to unique sculpture and its creators.” he concluded.

This year includes works by Suzie Bleach and Andy Townsend, Boyd MacMillan and Sam Anderson. Jesse Graham also makes a welcome return with his prize winning work.

Payten added: “Sculpture Bermagui offers the Artists Symposium on 16 March, guided tours, live music and fire spectacles. The 2019 Opening Ceremony in the Community Centre leads us onto a Trail of Light and Sound, with the Closing event on the magnificent Dickinson Point headland.
