After an outstanding 2014 event, planning is already underway for the Lorne Sculpture Biennale 2016. Having so successfully managed this year's Biennale, we are delighted that Julie Collins has agreed to continue as curator and to showcase the best of contemporary sculpture.
Julie brings energy and artistic vision to an event that is regionally-based but increasingly attracts both national and overseas interest. This year's Biennale broke all records for attendance, interest and the quality of the presentations. There is no doubt that Lorne Sculpture Biennale is now seen as the go-to exhibition for excitement and boldness in the visual arts.
"Biennale 2016 will showcase the expanded definition of what contemporary sculpture is, and can be. As curator I am looking for artists whose practice occupies or utilises the 3D, achieving high levels of artistic integrity, quality and above all innovation; artists whose work draws inspiration from the unique beauty of the Lorne landscape - its unspoilt bush, pristine surf beach and grand coastal vistas."

Proposals are being sought across all categories that sit within the sculptural realm. We would like to encourage all our supporters to take a look and spread the word about Lorne Sculpture Biennale 2016. And note the dates – the exhibition will open on the Labour Day weekend of 2016 and run over 3 weeks and 4 weekends through Easter, thus maximizing opportunities for wide attendance.
