An Outdoor and Indoor Sculpture Exhibition

Preparations are well underway for the 18th Lake Light Sculpture which will be held at Banjo Paterson Park over the Easter long weekend 10-13 April, 2020.

After a devastating Summer in our local region, the committee is hard at work to make this much loved Easter event bigger and better than ever before. We invite all our past exhibitors, and any contemplating entering for the first time, to help us reinvigorate our community with a spectacular array of works set against our stunning Snowy Mountains back drop and still water lake.

We especially invite any of our regular exhibitors whom have endured significant personal disruption due to the impact of the recent fires to contact us if any assistance is required to enable you to exhibit at this year’s event. For example, if you are unable to create a new work but have one you have exhibited in a previous event that you would like to enter again, please do not hesitate to get in touch. If you require assistance in any other area, please let us know and we will endeavour to help.

As further support, all artists affected by the recent Bush Fires will have their entry fee waived.

The event is an outdoor and indoor sculpture exhibition open to professional and novice artists as well as students and tradies that are keen to create and exhibit a sculpture that is controversial and thought-provoking or fun and whimsical.

At the 2019 event, more than 80 sculptures lined the pathway around the Lake Jindabyne foreshore and another 37 were displayed as part of the indoor exhibition.  Each display entertained thousands of visitors both during the day and at night with the outdoor exhibition particularly stunning where the sculptures were beautifully illuminated.

The deadline for entries is 6 March, 2020. 

The online entry form is simple to complete and will be available through the website which has undergone a recent face-lift at . If you require any assistance with this registration process, please contact Annette Findlay, our entries co-ordinator at [email protected] or 0423 081 850.

The prize pool for 2020 is in excess of $26,000 and we are looking forward to another successful event for our exhibitors and our visitors. We are still encouraging artists to provide their own lighting for their outdoor entry, so they qualify for the $5,000 Illumination Award. Power for these entries will still be supplied by Lake Light Sculpture.

The event for 2020 will again feature the Smalls Exhibition which will be held at Rydges Snowy Mountains. This will appeal to artists who work in glass, delicate or fragile materials that can’t bear the wear and tear of an outdoor sculpture exhibition. Sculptures that can sit comfortably on a plinth will loosely meet the criteria and this will allow many of our traditional and long-term exhibiting artists to enter another category.

The Lake Light Sculpture Committee look forward to receiving your entries and welcoming you to our region for Easter 2020.
