There are numerous sculptors operating in the Adelaide Hills, plus a number of symposiums and exhibitions, some of which are listed below. Please access these links to obtain respective sculpture information:
Adelaide Hills International Sculpture Symposium
Adelaide Hills International Sculpture Symposium - Founded in 2011, this symposium is an incorporated not for profit community based organisation formed to develop an exciting Arts initiative for the Adelaide Hills and South Australia. Internationally recognized sculptor and Adelaide Hills resident Silvio Apponyi had a vision to ‘Enrich the Hills with Sculpture’.
Heysen Sculpture Bienniel
The Heysen Sculpture Bienniel - Began in 2000, the initiative of Adelaide Hills artist Helen Lyons. Lyons was also the founder of Trees Please, the environmental group responsible for the continuing rehabilitation of the tracts of bushland within The Cedars. From 1912 this property was home to seminal interpreter of the Australian light and landscape, Sir Hans Heysen.
Developing from a dozen exhibiting local artists the event is now a major showcase of environmental art during the Adelaide Fringe Festival.
The Palmer Project
The Palmer Project - In 2001, Adelaide sculptor Greg Johns bought a former sheep grazing property at Palmer in the rain shadow of the Mount Lofty Ranges, about 70 km East of Adelaide. This property now has two main aims: the display of contemporary works of sculpture, and ecological rehabilitation. It is steadily evolving as a microcosm of the issues that relate art and environmental sustainability - part of the challenge facing all humanity.
