Sculptures in the Garden
Sat 7 October - Sun 22 October$5
Sculptures in the Garden is an exciting event that combines garden design, large scale Australian sculpture and traditional art mediums in beautiful rural surroundings within a private garden and vineyard in Mudgee.
Now in its 13th year, Sculptures in the Garden is Mudgee and regional NSW’s largest and most renowned outdoor sculpture exhibition. The outdoor exhibition runs for 16 days. Sculptures in the Garden has become a hallmark event on the Central West’s artistic calendar and major tourist attraction, showcasing sculptures from emerging and established artists.
Founded by art director and owner of Rosby, Kay Norton-Knight, Sculptures in the Garden was her dream child. Kay was passionate about providing a new and unique platform for the exhibition and sale of sculptors’ works.
Sculptures in the Garden is a not for profit organisation and as such any profits are distributed between the establishment of a sculpture walk in Mudgee and local charity Support Group of Guide Dogs NSW/ACT.
The What’s On calendar covers arts and heritage events happening across the NSW Central West in the local government areas of Bathurst Region, Blayney, Cabonne, Cowra, Forbes, Lachlan, Lithgow, Mid-Western Region, Oberon, Orange, Parkes and Weddin.
