Plans are already well underway for next year’s Cottesloe exhibition in Perth, Western Australia.
Featuring over 70 sculptures by artists from across the world set on beautiful Cottesloe beach overlooking the Indian Ocean the exhibition is a great excuse to visit Perth and WA if you have not been before
Cottesloe Beach (for those of you who don’t know it) is Perth’s most popular beach and it has some of the best sunsets of any major city in the world. March is a great time to visit as it is almost always really warm and the ocean is a great place to take a dip.
We are really pleased with how the show is coming together and over the coming months we will let you know some of the exhibition highlights which include a smaller (than usual) work by renowned Chinese sculptor Chen Wen Ling whose large work Red Memory Smile was the most popular sculpture at this year’s show receiving both the people’s choice and NAB Kids’ Choice prizes. The exhibition will also feature new works by leading West Australian sculptors Lou Lambert, Ron Gomboc and Tony Jones OAM as well highly regarded younger artists Paul Caporn, Alessandra Rossi and Jean-Marc Rivalland.
If you are thinking of coming to Cottesloe, think about joining us on our Sculpture, Food and Wine tour of Margaret River after the opening of the show. For more information contact Vivienne@sabratravel.com.au
See you in Perth!
