An exhibition of smaller sculpture reflective of place and narrative in sculpture and on the island.
After a tumultuous 2020 Herring Island invites to you respite and peace. In a small gallery in this bush setting the 16th Herring Island Summer Arts Festival will be held from 16th January to the 5th April 2021
On the first day of the exhibition we will offer COVID19 safe hospitality in the courtyard. Also under COVID19 restrictions visitors to the gallery are requested to register - either using the QR code with your smartphone or paper registrations. Records will be retained for 28 days only. Masks will be worn in the gallery but are not required in the courtyard where refreshments - single serve- will be available.
Always very popular, sculptors will be present to answer questions.
"Against the Odds" Online & In Real Life
The exhibition will be supported by an online exhibition of the work which will enable contactless voting for the people's choice award, online purchasing and viewing of the work 24/7. Onsite interaction with the system is via QR code blocks on each of the sculpture labels.
This will be great opportunity to see some small sculptural works as well as the permanent works scattered around the Island. Enjoy the short walk and perhaps a BBQ or Picnic. Bring the family.
