"The Sculptured Garden" Exhibition
Buderim Craft Cottage 9:00am - 4:00pm
5 Main Street
Buderim, Queensland, 4556
South East Qld garden lovers and sculpture collectors have been making the pilgrimage to this exhibition every spring since 1997. It provides one of few regular opportunities in Australia to enjoy unique hand-crafted ceramic sculpture from more than 30 artists, all under the same roof.
Much of the work in this exhibition is equally at home in the garden or the living room. Hence the artists call it their "Sculptured Garden".
Along with planters, pots and wall art expect to see sculptures representing the artists' personal interests and diverse styles.
Among them will be Maureen Sheargold's sublime delicate glazed vessels, and Deidre Phipps' playful animals and naughty ladies. Karel Beech was a graphic designer before turning to sculpture. Her design instincts are reflected in the bold colours, interplay of shapes and texture, and incorporation of "found objects" in her work. Robyn Baker's work is driven by her passion for environment protection. Her work helps to fund projects to protect the orang-utan and sun- bear populations in Borneo
These and more than 30 of their fellow artists will be entering over 150 works for the exhibition, making it an exceptional opportunity to see the diversity and talent of Sunshine Coast ceramic artists and sculptors.
Entry is free and all works are for sale.
The second weekend of the exhibition coincides with the Buderim Spring Garden Festival whhich takes place next door at the War Memorial Hall and at other sites around Buderim
