In late 2012 I joined the all-volunteer Heysen Sculpture Biennial committee and was elected chair of the committee. The committee has the task of planning and executing the biennial exhibition.
I was a participating artist in the 2012 HSB. Now, late March 2014, we are about half-way through the current 2014 exhibition at The Cedars located outside Hahndorf. The Cedars is the historic former home and studio of Sir Hans Heysen, one of Australia’s best known painters.
The 2014 HSB was opened on February 23 by Tracey Lock-Weir, Curator of Australian Sculpture & Paintings at the Art Gallery of South Australia. This year’s exhibition runs until April 27, each day except for Mondays. Well worth visiting. See the HSB website for details.
Dr Christine Nicholls wrote the catalogue essay for this years HSB, and she reviewed the exhibition online in The Conversation. You can read her review, and comments by visitors to The Cedars here.
