After the huge success last year of the first Sculpture on Clyde event, Batemans Bay is powering ahead with plans for the second competition to choose a suitable sculpture for our Sculpture walk.
August 24 – September 3 will see the town transformed into a vast sculpture park. The plan to create a world class sculpture walk in our town is underway, with the winner staying here and the winning artist taking home the $50,000 prize money.
Our first winner Dora A. Rognvaldsdottir’s shining welded aluminium sculpture “Duet” is in place in the Stockland precinct, and of course our octopus sculpture Bouyansea at Mena’s Point has been stopping traffic since its installation last year.
This year, the artists have been shown a plan agreed to by the Council, where the winner could be installed along our waterways. Both the landscape and the seascape influence the selection of these sites so that each new winning piece will be thoughtfully placed along our foreshores.
The town is gearing up for the expected visitors and many of our local restaurants and accommodation places are joining in with special packages for the event.
