The Wool­lahra Small Sculp­ture Prize has an­nounced 43 fi­nal­ists from 701 en­tries. The fi­nal­ists’ works show­case in­no­va­tion and di­ver­sity in their take on an orig­i­nal, free­stand­ing sculp­ture mea­sur­ing up to 80cm. Works span a range of medi­ums in­clud­ing taxi­dermy, in­tri­cately folded pa­per works, found ob­jects and tra­di­tional wo­ven sculp­tures cre­ated by Tjanpi Desert Weavers. En­tries in the prize, pre­sented by the Wool­lahra Coun­cil, ad­dress po­lit­i­cal, so­cial, per­sonal and play­ful themes. “We found the artists to be more in­ven­tive with their use of al­ter­na­tive ma­te­ri­als, with a trans­fer of ma­te­ri­als from the ev­ery­day to art,” Bar­bara Flynn, guest judge, art ad­viser and cu­ra­tor, says. A free ex­hi­bi­tion of the fi­nal­ists’ works will be held from Oc­to­ber 10-25 at Wool­lahra Coun­cil Cham­bers in Syd­ney. The win­ners will be named on Oc­to­ber 9, with prize money worth $19,000 awarded.
