One of North Sydney’s most picturesque harbourside parks is again playing host to a beautiful nine-day long art exhibition – Sculpture at Sawmillers.
The popular Sculpture at Sawmillers returns this February 19 and will run for nine days. Some of Australia’s most highly awarded and popular sculptors will share their work at the outdoor exhibition at beautiful Sawmillers Reserve, McMahons Point.
Free for all to attend and enjoy, and running until 27 February, Sculpture at Sawmillers was created by local resident and experienced Cultural Management Consultant Elsa Atkin AM, with funding and support from North Sydney Council.
Mayor of North Sydney Zoe Baker said: “This fourth Sculpture at Sawmillers is a testament to the creative vision, hard work and dedication of Elsa Atkin.
“Ms Atkin has given her time, energy, expertise and passion to ensure her vision of Sculpture at Sawmillers came alive for the community to enjoy. North Sydney has been enriched by her contribution to our cultural life.”
Exhibitors have been chosen from more than 100 entries and include award winning artists such as Michael Le Grand, Rob Robertson Swann and David Horton (all previous winners of Sculpture by the Sea), James Rogers and Paul & Hui Selwood (previous winners of Sculpture at Sawmillers), local Mosman artists Stephen Coburn and Jon Crothers, and Kirribilli sculptor Ellenore Griffith.
More than $40,000 prize money will be awarded by judges Michael Snape (sculptor), Jane Watters (Gallery Director) and Nick Vickers (curator).
Elsa Atkin added: “With the support of North Sydney Council and several generous sponsors, this year’s exhibition will run for nine days and will give many more people the chance to see it.”
So head along over the next nine days and enjoy this wonderful local waterside exhibition!
