Call for Entries - Kaipara Coast Sculpture Gardens
Exhibition 2020 Kaipara Coast Sculpture Gardens
We are now inviting submissions for the upcoming Kaipara Coast Sculpture Garden Exhibition 2020.
The Kaipara Coast Sculpture Gardens Exhibition aims to entertain and engage both the general public and the art community in an artistically challenging and visually stimulating outdoor environment.
Visitors participate in an engaging, interactive exhibition with playful elements, while walking a 2km trail which passes through a rural landscape with a mix of grassy slopes, ponds, wetland area, formal gardens, native bush, an orchard, pine planting and has views to the Kaipara Harbour.
We encourage sculptural works that create interest and engagement, and consider movement and interaction. This could be through ideas which are inspired by movement in nature, works in which physical movement is an element, or concepts that encourage our audience to play and interact with the exhibition as they move through the trail.
The sculpture gardens, which opened in 2008, have been developed in conjunction with Kaipara Coast Plant Centre which has been owned and operated by David and Geraldine Bayly from this site since 1988. This exhibition will celebrate 12 years of offering a wide range of sculpture to the viewing public and providing a showplace for sculptors to exhibit their work.
The sculpture gardens are only a 35-minute drive from Auckland on the scenic SH 16 route, making it readily accessible to a large public audience and to potential clients.
