Annual Lake Light Sculpture in Jindabyne
Lake Light Sculpture is an inspiring free outdoor sculpture exhibition and competition which will be held along the stunning foreshore of Lake Jindabyne in the Snowy Mountains of NSW from 18th to 21st April 2015.
The Easter long weekend offers a fantastic opportunity to experience Jindabyne. The sculptures are displayed in an evocative setting with the reflections of the Snowy Mountains on the lake, providing a living studio for the artworks but it is as night falls that the real magic begins. Illumination has, since the festivals inception, been a defining element of Lake Light Sculpture. Artists embed lighting, reflection and optical tricks into their sculptures to play on the light of Easter’s full moon. The effect is dramatic, transforming the already interesting sculptures and revealing hidden elements. It’s an ideal time to bundle up against the autumn chill and walk hand-in-hand with the ones you love along the foreshore.
Artists of every caliber – including professionals, experienced and emerging artists, community groups, and local tradesmen – participate in the event. Previous years prizes have included a sculpture residency at the Australian National University, the coveted People’s Choice Award, and the Illumination Award for the sculpture that best lights up the star-strewn night.
