This year is the tenth anniversary of Kaipara Coast Sculpture Garden’s exhibiting sculpture from contemporary New Zealand and overseas sculptors and this exhibition will is a milestone one.

This unique Sculpture Trail set in a tranquil, rural garden oasis has now been open for 10 years, exhibiting ten completely different sculpture shows, each with more than 40 sculptures, annually over that time.

As a celebration of 10 years of curating this event, curator Sally Lush has selected 1 work from each year that has resonated particularly with her and asked the artist to recreate that work or create another work that evokes a similar feeling, creating a mini show of “Curators Picks”.

Sally Lush says “It has been amazing to have the support of so many artists over the ten years and to be able to support, nurture and encourage artists to explore their creative endeavours free from commercial constraints. Artists have continually challenged, developed and expanded their art practices and it has been rewarding to see this development.”

Artists featured in the “Curators Picks” are Peter Lange (2009), Trish Clarke (2010), Gaye Jurisich (2011), Jin Ling (2012), Ramon Robertson (2013), Faith Tavernor (2014), Audrey Boyle (2015), Janette Cervin (2016) and Jeff Thomson for (2017).

The works selected for the main EXHIBITION 2018 reflect and explore themes of natural beauty, flora and fauna, environmental threats, colonisation and socio-political issues relating to the Kaipara area.
