Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

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.
