Batemans Bay’s Sculpture Walk is set to expand this year as plans for the second Sculpture on Clyde power up.
Keep the dates August 24 – September 3 clear because international as well as national and local artists are already expressing their interest in entering a sculpture of distinction, all vying for the $50,000 prize.
Last year’s Acquisition Prize winner “Bouyansea” at Mena’s Point has acquired celebrity status, stopping traffic on Beach Road, and “Duet” by Dora A. Rognvaldsdottir has been installed in the Stockland precinct for everyone to enjoy.
The 2018 winner will also be installed along our waterways and will add to our world class Sculpture Walk.
“There is enormous excitement and interest in our Acquisition Prize,” said Chamber of Commerce President and Sculpture on Clyde committee member, David Maclachlan. “We have had expressions of interest from well-known overseas sculptors.”
“Plans for the 10 day sculpture showcase are well underway and we hope the community will support this event as well as it did last year.”
The inaugural Sculpture on Clyde attracted many locals and tourists who were impressed by the diversity of talent on display. The event also aims to promote Batemans Bay as an Arts destination. Local restaurants and accommodation places are joining in with special packages for the event.
