South East Arts | Lake Light Sculpture Entries Open

Entries are now open for the 2019 Lake Light Sculpture exhibition, to be held from 19 – 22 April on the foreshore of Lake Jindabyne in the Snowy Mountains.

Established in 2002, the exhibition is open day and night and attracts up to 20,000 visitors, many of whom view the sculptures in both daylight and moonlight.

Entries are open to all forms of sculpture and skill sets, with previous exhibitions attracting a strong field of established, mid career, emerging and novice artists. Professional, experienced and emerging artists, tradesmen and community groups are also able to exhibit in the show.

The exhibition will be judged by an expert panel with major awards offered in categories including Illumination, Environment, Youth and People’s Choice. A sculpture residency at the Australian National University will also be available.
