Sculptures in the Garden
Saturday 07 October 2023 to Sunday 22 October 2023
Sculptures in the Garden is an exciting 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.
Now in its 13th year, Sculptures in the Garden is Mudgee and regional NSW’s largest and most renowned outdoor sculpture exhibition. The outdoor exhibition runs for 16 days. Sculptures in the Garden has become a hallmark event on the Central West’s artistic calendar and major tourist attraction, showcasing sculptures from emerging and established artists.
Founded by art director and owner of Rosby, Kay Norton-Knight, Sculptures in the Garden was her dream child. Kay was passionate about providing a new and unique platform for the exhibition and sale of sculptors' works.
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 charity Support Group of Guide Dogs NSW/ACT.
