Sculpture competition attracts international interest



THE 2006 Casuarina Sculpture Walk is again set to attract artists from Australia and abroad.

Twenty-five sculptures will be installed along a two-kilometre stretch of beachfront boardwalk, with three sculptors to each receive $20,000 and their works to remain on permanent exhibition.

The winning works will join five existing sculptures already on permanent display from the inaugural 2005 award.

The $60,000 prize pool is expected to attract more than 100 entries, from which the 25 works will be pre-selected for exhibition.

One of last year's successful finalists, Scots sculptor Andy Scott said he would again submit an entry.

"It was a very enjoyable and important opportunity," the internationally-exhibited sculptor said.

"An outdoor exhibition opens your work up to the widest range of the public compared to galleries. You get a whole new range of critics and fans," he said.

Casuarina Beach developer, Consolidated Properties, has made a seven-year commitment to the competition worth more than $1 million.

Launching the 2006 competition, managing director Don O'Rorke said public art played an important role in creating a sense of place and engaging people to interact with that space.

Sculpture Walk competition entry details are available on the Casuarina Beach Domain Resort website www.domainresorts.com with a closing date of March 17.

The sculptures will be installed along the Casuarina boardwalk on June 29 and 30, with the exhibition to be open to the public from July 1 until July 23.
