Postponed: Sculpture by the Sea
We’re pleased to report the coastal walk from Bondi to Tamarama will again be made even more beautiful this October. It’s just been announced that the annual outdoor exhibition Sculpture by the Sea won’t be yet another Covid-19 casualty – it will return from October 22 to November 8.
After a worldwide call for submissions, more than 100 artists from 15 countries – including Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Norway, France, Czech Republic, Ukraine, Greece and China – have been selected to exhibit their large-scale works.
Among them are regular exhibitors such as Tasmanian Marcus Tatton and Zimbabwe-born Sydney artist Linda Bowden. While 30 per cent of the artists will exhibit for the first time.
Returning this year is New Zealand sculptor Morgan Jones who won the prestigious Aqualand Sculpture Award in 2019 for his piece The Sun Also Rises. With a $70,000 prize, it’s one of the richest art awards in the world.
This event will go ahead pending any public gathering restrictions remaining in place into late October.
