It’s a swell time to explore sculpture

Swell Sculpture Festival is ba-ack … from 12 – 21 September, along Pacific Parade Currumbin, more than 50 sculptures will feature as part of this 12th annual event. Open 24/7, the free exhibition allows visitors to experience art and enjoy coastal walks but the full program allows you to listen to artists and participate in a bunch of workshops and master classes as well.

And this year, you can also participate in the Festival’s offshoot, Northern Swell at Helensvale Library & Cultural Centre with internationally acclaimed artist Georges Cuvillier’s bamboo sculpture wowing visitors already.

The Swell Smalls Gallery also offers an exhibition of smaller works by exhibiting artists and allows visitors to experience this artform in an intimate setting. The exhibition runs 6 – 21 September and is open 9.00a – 4.00pm daily.
