While we on the northern rivers are lucky to have some great galleries in our area, what better setting is there for sculpture than in nature itself?

That’s the idea behind the Swell Sculpture Festival, which takes place right on the beach, just over the border at Currumbin.

This year’s festival, which marks the 13th annual event, opened on Friday with a display of more 50 sculptures built by local, national and international artists.

The free exhibition is open all hours with a selection of sculptures revealing a new verve as they are lit up under the southern sky. It runs until September 20.

 


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
