Sculptures In The Garden is an not for profit 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. All proceeds from the weekend exhibition go to the Mudgee Support Group of Guide Dogs NSW/ACT and a local arts initiative to develop a sculpture walk in Mudgee’s Lawson Park.
The inaugural Sculptures in the Garden event was first held in October 2011 and attracted 130 sculptures and more than 1000 visitors over the weekend. The 2012 & 2013 & 2014 & 2015 events each brought around 2000+ visitors to the region and showcased more than 250 artist’s work.
The SIG Committee is made up of seven local volunteers who's aim is to celebrate the work of Australian artists as well as raise money for local charity and art initiatives.
