A biennial celebration of great art, Sculpture on the Peninsula (which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year) is the South Island’s largest outdoor sculpture exhibition. Showcasing both emerging and established sculptors from around the country, this year’s event is set to feature work from over 60 artists displayed around Teddington’s historic Loudon Farm. There’s also a host of entertainment on over the weekend of the festival, with local musos including Lindon Puffin, Carmel Courtney and The Eastern cranking out tunes throughout both days.
Those who want to go even bigger can nab themselves some tickets for the grand opening evening on Friday night; as well as giving you the chance to take a look at this year’s selection first, your $75 ticket includes international street food, local craft beers and selected wines, and more live entertainment. In addition author Joe Bennett will be auctioning off 12 150-year-old totara posts turned into works of art by local artists including Bill Hammond, Jason Grieg, Mark Whyte and Dean Venrooy – and with all proceeds from the event donated to the Cholmondeley Children’s Centre in Governors Bay, here’s a chance to get some good karma with your new conversation piece.
