This resulted in overwhelming support from community and regional authorities and the formation of the Lorne Sculpture Exhibition Inc. A Committee team led by Jack and Cynthia Wynhoven set up the inaugural exhibition called “The Littoral Edge” from October 26 to November 11, 2007. Renowned Australian Art Historian and Lecturer Ken Scarlett was appointed as Curator for the first Lorne Sculpture Exhibition in 2007.
The first Lorne Sculpture Exhibition was acclaimed by the Australian sculpture world, the local community, critics and artists alike as an important new showcase for contemporary sculpture for both local and international artists.
For three weeks in March, the Lorne foreshore is the picturesque pedestal for dozen of sculptures created by some of Australia’s top established and emerging sculptors. LSB 2016 will be a multi layered event and our Curator for 2016, Julie Collins, has announced the return of the Sculpture Trail with around 35 major sculptures positioned along the coastline, Small Sculpture (The Collectors’ Project), Sculpturscape where sculptors will create sculptural projects on site over two days and an expanded Performance Art program providing several not to be missed experiences.
35 sculptors have been selected to be part of the sculpture trail which will extend from the pier along the coastal trail, down the boardwalk, meandering along cypress drive and finishing up at the Erskine River. Many Sculptors will create new projects specially for Lorne and we will see an exciting mix of emerging and established sculptors. A $25,000 non-acquisitive prize will be awarded to one sculptor.
