Sculpture Northland 2017

About this image

Whangarei Fritter Festival

Sculpture Northland is all set to return to Whangarei Quarry Gardens this November. With over 40 talented local artists in the lineup, this is set to be yet another fantastic exhibition.

Set in the stunning location of the Gardens we combine Art with Nature and the result is simply magical. Sculpture Northland 2017 will be launched on Thursday 2nd with an Opening Gala and on Friday doors open to the public. On Saturday visitors will also be treated to the Quarry Gardens Volunteer's plant sale.

Our team of wonderful volunteers have been working overtime to prepare a great array of plants for this year's sale, and it is all for the love of the Gardens. Whangarei Quarry Gardens is a non-profit organisation and continues to blossom and grow because of the amazing support from the local community through its volunteers, visitor donations, grants and of course by holding a community event such as Sculpture Northland.

Not only does Sculpture Northland raise funds for the Gardens - it supports and promotes our hugely talented local artists.

Come along and choose your favourite piece and be sure to vote for the "People's Choice Award" - Sponsored by Creative Northland.

There will be a Special Event opening night on Friday the 3rd. Tickets for the opening are very limited, so we suggest getting in quickly by emailing events@whangareigardens.org.nz for more information.

Special thanks to our sponsors: Mitre 10 Mega Whangarei, Creative Northland, Tait Real Estate, Top 10 Holiday Park Whangarei, Bella Homes and Sciadopitys Garden Centre.

About this Venue

An old overgrown Whangarei quarry has been transformed into a sub-tropical garden through the hard work of community volunteers.

The gardens have a network of walking and cycling paths which navigate streams and waterfalls.
