ANNUAL SCULPTURE PRIZE
Open 7 days a week, 9-5
Our 2021-2022 Annual Sculpture Prize Exhibition at Art Farm Birchs Bay is open October 24th-February 6th. We award community-sponsored prizes to large and small works of outdoor sculpture, through an exhibition hosted on our 2km sculpture trail which spans garden, paddock, orchard, and bush terrain.
The Art Farm Birchs Bay Sculpture Prize offers over $10,000 in prizes. Acquisitions become part of the permanent collection and can be viewed all year round on site at Art Farm Birchs Bay, or elsewhere in Kingborough through the Kingborough Acquisitive Prize.
This year will see 24 new artworks pop up through late spring and summer.

EPHEMERAL PLEASURES by White Field
Art Farm are pleased to present Ephemeral
Pleasures by the Tas/NSW artistic
collaboration White Field.
In the Distillery Gallery, you will
find their work May This Be What You
Remember Most, while at the turning
point, the site-specific installation Gifts
Examining themes of time, place, and the
redemptive qualities of nature, White Field
aims to interrupt a sense of familiarity
in the local environment by sensitively
injecting colour, shape and texture through
ephemeral and site-specific interventions.
They use found and natural materials which
engage with the landscape, largely at a
juncture between the natural and man-
made, inviting the viewer to re-frame their
perception of the world.
It is their intention, that both the
physical and subjective experience of these
responses can generate meaning and
ultimately provoke contemplation.
