Ongoing success led to the expansion of Sculpture by the Bay in 2019 to include a Small Sculpture Prize. The Committee partnered 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 email@example.com

Erl & Ros Happ of Happs Wines, Commonage Road
Mike & Gillian McAuliffe of Braeco Sales, Osborne Park
