The muchly awaited Sculpture by the Sea exhibition opens at Cottesloe Beach today.
Brainchild of David Handley, it is the largest free to the public outdoor art exhibition in Australia attracting locals and visitors alike from interstate and overseas.
There will be over 30 WA sculptors including Tim Macfarlane Reid exhibiting their artworks alongside interstate and international artists from China, Finland, Czech Republic, Japan, South Korea and New Zealand.
Two of the world’s leading sculptors Zadok Ben-David (Israel/England) and Sir Tony Cragg RA (England) will be showcasing their artworks for the very first time in Perth.
Award winning artist Zadok Ben-David creates hand cut metal installations that are inspired by nature, science and magic. He will be presenting his piece "Big Boy" at this year’s exhibition.
Sir Tony Cragg RA, another world renowned sculptor will be unveiling his bronze sculpture "Luke", that forms part of his Rational Beings exhibition works. He likes to explore the relationships between mathematically based formal constructions that build complex organic forms.
Take the time to soak up the atmosphere at this year’s Sculpture by the Sea in Perth - watch a sunset or two and enjoy the beautiful weather at Cottesloe Beach. We are lucky to have this exhibition brought to us again in Perth this year.
