Sculpture at Scenic World

Twenty-nine artists present work in a variety of forms in the enchanting Jurassic rainforest of Scenic World from 12 April to 12 May. The practices were chosen from over 100 submissions by a panel including the University of New South Wales’ Deputy Dean for Art & Design, Professor Marie Sierra; independent curator, Axel Arnott; and Blue Mountains-based artist Heidi Axelsen.

The 2019 iteration highlights Australian artists engaging with the natural environment, such as Nadia Odlum, Wendy Teakel, Chrystal Rimmer, Merron Esson and Noah Birch, among others. Public programs will take place across the month, over $30,000 in prizes will be awarded and viewers can also enjoy art indoors in ‘Sculpture Otherwise’, a show that focuses on the creativity of the region at the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre.
