Where art meets the sea…
When two of the most beautiful things in the world are put side by side, the results are nothing short of breath taking. Each year, Sculpture By The Sea returns to Cottesloe Beach, transforming the coast line into a giant visual delight. Day one of the exhibition (that was officially opened last Friday) saw Mother Nature turn on the goods and had the beach absolutely teeming with art enthusiasts, school groups, tourists and general beach goers alike.
With 69 pieces on display from local and international artists, this year’s Sculpture By The Sea is expected to draw over 200,000 visitors to Cottesloe Beach. Some of this year’s stand out pieces (and my favourites) are Stormie Mills’ unmissable giant pink bunny, David Cerny‘s huge baby sculptures and the exhibitions first fully submerged piece by Fremantle artist Olivia Samec and her partner James Moe. Running until March 23rd, Sculpture By The Sea is an unmissable event in Perth’s ever growing cultural/event calendar.
