Sculpture at Scenic World 2015 packages


Arts and nature packaged into one memorable family escape for Sculpture at Scenic World 2015

Take a creative family escape to the Blue Mountains for Sculpture at Scenic World 2015 and explore 32 unique sculptures curated within Scenic World's Jurassic rainforest.

featured at Sculpture at Scenic World 2014
Now in its fourth year, the exhibition (15 April – 10 May 2015) has partnered with leading Blue Mountains hotels and resorts to offer a range of accommodation packages for this major Australian cultural event. From the iconic Hydro Majestic to the landmark Carrington Hotel, or the Fairmont Resort, Lilianfels Resort & Spa, Echoes Boutique Hotel, and Parklands Country Gardens and Lodges, visitors can book an overnight stay, experiencing both the exhibition and autumn in the Blue Mountains.

The exhibition's 2015 Public Program offers exciting opportunities for art lovers, enthusiasts, children and families. Participants will learn new skills, gain insights, and engage in open forums. Highlights include free guided tours for the general public – including a tour tailored for families – and Artist Talks providing an opportunity to engage in lively discussions with a selection of exhibiting artists including New Zealand artist Lang Ea, Wollongong artist Greer Taylor, and Northern Beaches artist Jane Gillings.

This year, the Sculpture Projects initiative presents an in depth look at materials artist use to create their works in a program called metalheads. Featuring notable sculptors working with metal, works will be exhibited at three Katoomba venues: the Carrington Hotel, the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre forecourt, and Scenic World's plaza.

The highly anticipated Sculpture for Small People returns with an exciting new program. The hour-long workshops are aimed at children aged 3 to 6 years and 6 to 9 years. The workshops are a great opportunity for children to engage with the exhibiting artists in a fun atmosphere. There is a range of skills children can learn, from clay sculpture with Upper North Shore based artists Amanda Hale and Karen Farrell, to totem pole design and creation with local Blue Mountains artist Hannah Surtees.

The program will also include an all-day family drop-in 'Mini Miner's Hut Workshop' on the 19th of April. Families are encouraged to come along and create a colourful, three-dimensional cardboard cubby-house to take home, based on the wonderful attraction of the historic Miner's Hut on the rainforest walk.

In another first the indoor component of the exhibition, Sculpture Otherwise, will show in the Blue Mountains City Art Gallery's main gallery space. Ticketed entry into Sculpture at Scenic World will include entry into the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre with guided tours available.
