In 2022 the Quarry Gardens will be hosting the 8th Sculpture Northland right here in the heart of Whangarei. The exhibition will showcase the amazing sculpture artists that Tai Tokerau has to offer as well as the subtropical oasis that is the Whangarei Quarry Gardens.
Every year since its inception in 2008, Sculpture Northland gets a little bigger and a little better. In 2019, we saw over 10,000 people through the gardens during the 10 days and sold over 60% of all the artworks exhibited! All the proceeds from this exceptional event go towards the running and development costs of the Quarry Gardens.
We make sure that there are a wide range of sculptures from small and very affordable, to high end works from recognised professional artists. This means there really can be something for everyone! So, come and see some amazing artwork, explore our stunning gardens, take something home and have a great day knowing that you have contributed to Northland, the arts and the Quarry Gardens future.
As new artists come onboard, new works are created and practices evolve, so too does Sculpture Northland. No two exhibitions have ever been the same and the ever-changing gardens also reflect this development. We see the success of Sculpture Northland as being a huge asset to Whangarei and the wider Northland Region. Many people have come to know and look forward to this exhibition and we know that it will continue to draw in the crowds for many, many years to come.
SEE YOU THERE!
With Thanks To Our Amazing Volunteers - The garden and events volunteers who facilitate Sculpture Northland are absolutely tantamount to its success. The only way we can keep ticket prices low for the community and make a profit for the running costs of the gardens is through the huge commitment of our volunteers. They put in many, many unpaid hours over the 10 event days as well as a huge amount of background work leading up to the event.
