Exhibition 2014 at Kaipara Coast Sculpture Gardens features 57 new works by 46 established and emerging New Zealand artists who are passionate about expressing their ideas through sculpture, displayed in a stunning garden setting against a backdrop of the Kaipara harbour.

The selected contemporary sculptures, created by established and emerging New Zealand artists are set along the one kilometre trail that winds through a secluded valley containing a slice of almost every type of iconic New Zealand landscape: manicured lawns, citrus orchards, grassy slopes, regenerating bush, old farm fences, pine forest, potagers and ponds.

Static, kinetic, sound and installation sculptures made from wood, metal, video, plastic, ceramic, stone and glass have been selected for each context making mini-galleries within the valley. Works are revealed as the path twists and turns, sculptures are seen from vantage points where picnic spots and seating invite visitors to rest and contemplate the art.

A visit at any time of the year is an ideal, relaxing and inspirational activity to enjoy with family and friends.

The new sculptures relate, reflect and explore the natural beauty of this region of Auckland, the Kaipara Harbour, the flora and fauna, threats to the environment, the history of the land, colonisation and socio-political issues relating to this area, New Zealand and where our country fits in the global arena.

For this exhibition artists have been selected from all over New Zealand with Rod and Marguerite Davies, from Kaitaia, in the north to Russell Beck and Phil Newbury from Invercargill in the south.

“Kaipara Coast appreciates the huge commitment of time, finances and love for their art that is required for artists to travel these large distances to exhibit their work in this time of economic uncertainty. Every year the work on display is really different and this year windows and reflective surfaces offer a peek into different worlds.” says Sally Lush Curator of the sixth annual exhibition at the gardens.

Artists selected are Alysn Midgelow-Marsden, Anna Scott – Davidson, Audrey Boyle, Bev Goodwin, Boud van den Bemd, Bruce Young, Carol Green, Carol Robinson, Cherrie James, Claire Sadler, Clovis Viscoe, Darryl Fagence, Dawn Flower, Faith Tavernor, Fiona Rennie Schwieters, Ian Fewtrell, Ivan Parke, Jan Gosling, Jay Lloyd, Jill Guillemin, John Mulholland, John Rawson, Justin Murfitt, Kate Millington, Katherine Batchelor, Linda Pringle, Lucy Bucknall, Marguerite Davies, Maria Lloyd, Mason Vincent, Nicky Adams, Nigel Lynam, Paul Andrew, Phil Newbury, Phillippa Kenny, Ramon Robertson, Raynor Dunn, Riki Waugh, Robert Onnes, Rod Davies, Russell Beck, Samuel Ludden, Shane Blind, Stuart Thomson, Tim Elliot and Vibeke Wright.

Entry price is $10 per Adult, $5 per child (5 to 13 years) under 5’s free, Family Pass $25 (2 Adults & 3 children).
