A record number of entries have been received for next month’s Dunsborough Sculpture By the Bay competition, held over the March long weekend as part of the annual Dunsborough Arts Festival.
Coordinator Vicky Small said 48 sculptural works would be exhibited on the Dunsborough foreshore during the Festival from March 1-4.
“Another 30 small works also will be on show at the Christian Fletcher Gallery in a new event for the competition aimed at works no larger than 500 cm in height,” Ms Small said.
“Entries this year have come from throughout the State from both new and returning artists.
“They include Fremantle artist Ross Hall who last year shared in the Happ’s Emerging Artist Award at Sculpture by the Bay for his work ‘Temptress’. Ross has entered both the main competition and the new small works competition,” Ms Small said.
The Dunsborough Sculpture by the Bay is the biggest regional sculpture competition in Western Australia.
