Deadline extended for sculpture event
DEADLINE for the second biennial Sculpture by the Tree has been extended to September 30, giving Byron Shire artists more time to submit their entries for pre-selection.
"Founded in 2009 as part of Federal's annual Park Party, the show gives sculptors the opportunity to showcase their work in an outdoor setting to a creative and appreciative community," curator Suvira McDonald said.
"The Northern Rivers has a wealth of artists working three dimensionally and Sculpture by the Tree celebrates that."
Artists will compete for a $2000 Acquisition Prize, People's Choice Prize, and the opportunity to see their work permanently displayed in the heart of Federal Village.
Entry forms can be downloaded at www.sculptureby thetree.com while the exhibition will coincide with the annual Park Party on November 5, 2011.
