sculpture by the sea

I like to head up at sunrise and beat the crowds.  My absolute favourite this year is “Indiana” from Tania Spencer.

Art is so subjective and personal which is my favourite thing about Sculpture by the Sea. Some pieces have me scratching my head but the person next to me is loving it and vice versa.

There are a few different ways to enjoy the artworks at Sculpture by the Sea, you can wander around the pieces or jump in on a guided tour.

Every weekend between 10am – 3pm there will be free artists talks. There will be a few sessions each Saturday & Sunday to run for about 10-20 minutes. Look out for the red bean bags and feather banners installed at various locations on the day. The talks also include an AUSLAN Interpreter. More information on which artist will be presenting can be found at sculpturebythesea.com/cottesloe/artist-talks/
