Lake Light Sculpture is an inspiring outdoor sculpture exhibition and competition held along the stunning foreshore of Lake Jindabyne in the Snowy Mountains of New South Wales. The event has been held most Easters since 2002 and attracts up to 20,000 visitors. The event is open day and night and many visitors visit the event a number of times to view the sculptures in both daylight and by moonlight.
In 2019 the event will be held from the 19th – 22nd April. The exhibition is open to all forms of sculpture. Professional, experienced and emerging artists, tradesmen, and community groups are able to exhibit in the event and the exhibition attracts a strong field of established, mid career, emerging and novice artists.
The exhibition will be judged by an expert panel with major awards offered in categories including Illumination, Environment, Youth and People’s Choice. A sculpture residency at the Australian National University will also be available.
