Headland artists named
Veteran sculptors will be joined by some new international faces in the 2015 headland Sculpture on the Gulf exhibition.
The biennial event’s lineup was announced on Monday.
Two kilometres of the Matiatia headland will be decorated with 31 works of art from January 23 to February 15.
Suji Park, Scott Eady, Seung Yul Oh and Finnish duo Elin and Keino are some of the newcomers to the event, organisers say.
Established artists David McCracken, Jeff Thomson and Virginia King will make a return for the 2015 exhibition.
The headland Sculpture on the Gulf was established in 2003 by the Waiheke Community Art Gallery.
More than 120 entries were received for next year’s event.
Hamilton Public Sculpture Trust’s Kate Darrow, Chartwell Trust’s Sue Gar- diner and Rotorua Museum Art Curator Karl Chitham made up the independent panel which chose 31 entries for the exhibition.
The event is free to the public.
