The third biennial Wildflower Sculpture Exhibition at Round Pond Garden, Hastings, is on again next month from November 7-11.
More than 60 artists from Hawke's Bay and beyond will be showcased in the exhibition, run in association with the Hospice Holly Trail.
The exhibition and the trail both raise funds for Cranford Hospice. Although trail tickets have already sold out, entry to the exhibition is $10 per person and is paid at the gate.
Julie Russell from Round Pond said this year's exhibition was shaping up well. "We've got some really exciting new artists on board, as well as many familiar names and perennial favourites, and many of the sculptors are really working hard to make pieces that connect specifically with a garden setting. It's exciting."
Artists include emerging and student sculptors, a contingent of Whanganui glass artists, several artists from North Canterbury, Northland, Wellington and Waiheke Island, and many from the Bay such as David Trubridge, Ricks Terstappen, Ross Mackay, Linda Bruce and William Jameson.
The work on show will be in a variety of media including glass, steel, wood, ceramics, stone, found materials, paper, bronze and wire.
There is also a new event, Wildflower Sculpture at Twilight, in which the exhibition will stay open until 8.30pm on Friday November 9. Food, wine and other beverages will be available, and it is a F.A.W.C! (Hawke's Bay Tourism's Food and Wine Classic) event too.
