SCULPTURES IN THE GARDEN

 

Rosby’s annual art workshop program culminates in a two-day outdoor sculpture exhibition showcasing the best regional and emerging outdoor artists across Australia.

Sculptures in the Garden was the dreamchild of Kay Norton-Knight, who was passionate about providing a new and unique platform for the exhibition and sale of sculptors' works.

Held annually on the second weekend in October, Sculptures in the Garden has become a hallmark event on the Central West’s artistic calendar, and a major tourist attraction.

Since its inaugural exhibition in 2011, 79 artists have sold more than 430 artworks for a combined total of almost $250,000. Seventy per cent of exhibitors are from regional areas, who don’t have many opportunities to showcase their work.

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 charities.

The event also offers artist talks, sculpture demonstrations, and garden tours along with a range of local providores providing gourmet refreshments.
