An annual exhibition of sculpture held outdoors on the stunning foreshore in Dunsborough WA

For just three days each March long weekend the Dunsborough Foreshore at the end of Dunn Bay Road is transformed, as artists provide a visual display of outdoor sculptural works for all to enjoy.

The event commenced in 2010 with just 12 artworks on display, but now on average 30 works are displayed each year.

Sculpture by the Bay is coordinated entirely by local volunteers of the Dunsborough Progress Association.

Their purpose is to; foster interest in Public artwork, to provide a venue for artists of outdoor works to exhibit, and in particular, to develop a Sculpture Trail within the Dunsborough area.

Public participation grows each year with an estimated 7000 people viewing the art in March 2018.

As well, the local community wholeheartedly supports the event with many volunteering to assist before and during the display.

Ongoing success has led to expansion of the event to include a Small Sculpture Prize for the tenth year of Sculpture by the Bay, 2019. The Committee is partnering with Christian Fletcher Gallery in Dunsborough for the display of the Small Sculpture Prize exhibition with the opportunity to exhibit up to 40 works.

Sponsorship of awards for both exhibitions is provided by individual community members, and local businesses who have a strong belief in the importance of the event for the community, as well as supporting artists in their creative endeavours. Without our sponsors continued commitment to Sculpture by the Bay it would not be possible for the event to be the success it is.

If you, or your business, would be interested in sponsoring an award at either Sculpture by the Bay, or the Small Sculpture Prize, please read the linked Sponsorship Program document and contact the organising committee at admin@sculpturebythebay.com.au
