The annual "Sculptured Garden" exhibition, Sunshine Coast at Atrium Gallery, Buderim Craft Cottage

12 Oct - 20 Oct
South East Queensland garden lovers and sculpture collectors have been making the pilgrimage to this exhibition every spring since 1997. It provides one of few opportunities in Australia to enjoy unique hand-crafted ceramic sculpture from more than 30 artists, all under the same roof. Much of the work in this exhibition is equally at home in the garden or the living room. Hence the artists call it their "Sculptured Garden". Along with planters, pots and wall art, expect to see sculptures representing the artists' personal interests and diverse styles. Among them will be Deidre Phipps' playful animals and naughty ladies, Karel Beech's brilliantly coloured and highly graphic works. Karel was a graphic designer before turning to sculpture. That training is reflected in her sculptural style: bold use of colour, interplay of shapes and texture, and incorporation of "found objects" in her work. Jose McInnes is another regular exhibitor at "Sculptured Garden". An accomplished painter as well as a sculptor, her style is highly allegorical and evocative. These artists as well as another 30 or so exhibitors are expected to submit over 150 works for the exhibition, making it one of the largest regular shows of hand-crafted ceramic sculpture in Australia.
