Central by the Sea

Central’s art graduates and lecturers continue to enjoy success in sculpture with their work again featured in the 10th annual Sculpture by the Sea exhibition.

Sculpture by the Sea features 74 sculptures from local, interstate and international artists spread out along and around the Cottesloe coastline.

This year features exhibits from former Central Students Kathy Allam and Helen Seiver and Senior Art lecturer and acclaimed sculptor Tony Jones.

It’s Kathy Allam’s fourth year at Sculpture by the Sea.  This year her ‘Green Dream’ work explores the desire to live cleaner and greener. The piece is made from recycled drink bottles collected from friends and neighbours and has solar powered LED lights that illuminate the sculpture after dark.
