After its stunning success last Easter, the Lake Light Sculpture committee is Calling for Entries for the 2018 Event to be held next Easter on the foreshores of Lake Jindabyne from 30th March – 2nd April 2018 with a record prize pool of $20,000 including the Major Prize of $10,000.
“Thanks to the generosity of local businesses, organisations and supporters of this event, we are again able to offer a prize pool of $20,000 including the Major Prize of $10,000” said Lake Light Committee Chair, Lisa Matthes. “The illumination of the sculptures which may be viewed at night under the Easter Full moon makes Lake Light Sculpture a unique outdoor exhibition and to encourage artists to incorporate illumination into their artworks, we will again be offering an Illumination Award Category of $5,000 along with the People’s Choice Illumination Award Category”.
The Snowy Mountains’ area is a great holiday destination at Easter and the picturesque Snowy Mountains and Lake backdrop combined with glorious Autumn colours provide a wonderful setting for sculptures.
Longtime exhibitor to the event & multiple Major Award Winner, Eden’s Jesse Graham was thrilled to sell another of his sculptures, the 2018 Major Award winning piece Buoyansea to the Batemans Bay Chamber of Commerce where it is now proudly on display on Beach Road. This piece will join Song & Dance in his array of public arts acquisitions which was purchased by the Snowy Monaro Regional Council after the 2013 Lake Light Sculpture event.
With record sculpture sales last Easter, the event continues to grow and is now considered one of the feature events on the Snowy Mountains’ Summer calendar and the Regional Arts NSW calendar. Prize levels in all categories continue to be high with many diverse categories including a range of Environmental, Encouragement and Community Awards attracting entries from established professional and emerging artists, tradespeople, local school and community groups.
The Application Form can be found at www.lakelightsculpture.com.au and entries close 2nd March 2018.
