Sculpture on the Gulf
Today marks the start of headland Sculpture on the Gulf on Waiheke Island – a fantastic exhibition of large scale sculptures by 26 leading artists along a very pretty 2 kilometre coastal walkway. Waiheke Island, just a short ferry ride from Auckland city, is one of my favourite places in all of New Zealand so I’m disappointed I won’t make it to this event. But that shouldn’t stop anyone else. It’s on for three weeks this year and if you want to check out the terrific works from past exhibitions check out www.sculptureonthegulf.co.nz and their blog gives details about participating artists. The works shown here are Top: “Ship of Fools” by Fletcher Vaughan and bottom: “Gulf Cross (road) by Leon van den Eijkel.
