We are now inviting submissions for the upcoming Kaipara Coast Sculpture Garden Exhibition 2021.

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 the exhibition while walking a 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.

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 13 years of proudly showcasing a wide range of New Zealand made art.

We are seeking proposals for outdoor artworks from artists across all art forms with a focus on sculptural works. We encourage concepts that consider a local sense of place. This could be through ideas which are inspired by experiences unique to our environment or concepts that create unique experiences for our visitors and community.

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.
