This event has multiple locations.
Sculpture at Bathers is back! In its biggest testament to home grown WA talent, the biennial exhibition returns to Bathers Beach, Fremantle from 25 February - 12 March 2017. For two weeks, over 80 of our state's most talented sculptors will come together in this unique coastal setting,
Our vision is to engage the whole community, to deliver a significant and distinctively West Australian contemporary sculpture survey and an accessible and unforgettable cultural event.
Large-scale, robust outdoor works will line the limestone cliffs, along Bathers Beach, stand in the open courtyard, timber boardwalks and winding paths. Inside the historic galleries of Kidogo Arthouse smaller scale, more intimate works will be on display.
In a Sculpture at Bathers highlight, guest sculptor Cameron Robbins will install a signature kinetic artwork, harnessing natural forces: see https://cameronrobbins.com
More of Cameron's works will be on display inside the foyer of the Esplanade Hotel Fremantle by Rydges (our first Principal Corporate Sponsor) who will host our inaugural satellite exhibition featuring works by 19 sculptors.
Furthring our community connections, inaugural artist-in-residence Thomas de Munk-Kerkmeer settles in at Little Creatures from Thurs 16 Feb - Mon 20 Feb. Thomas will captivate the crowds whilst finalising his work for installation at the main exhibition at Bathers Beach.
Children and adults alike will 'Follow the Shimmer' to Fremantle as our magical and monumental 1.5 tonne bronze sculpture pops up in four surprise locations from Perth to Bathers Beach from 16 Jan.
There will be something for everyone in this celebration of West Australian culture and boutique village destination - guided artist tours, children's activities, the return of the popular 'Kelp Bar' at Kidogo Arthouse, vibrant social events and much more.
