Urgent Message to Freo Sculptors

2020 Castaways Sculpture Awards Entries Closing Date Is Nearly Here!
Castaways is the City of Rockingham’s signature arts and cultural event, celebrating environmental awareness though artistic innovation.
Entries for this year’s, now well-established and popular Castaways Sculpture Awards are open, but be sure not to miss the closing date – 5 June – for entries to the main exhibition.
There are cash prizes worth fighting over!
Each year, the outdoor sculptural exhibition showcases artworks from Western Australian artists, created from repurposed materials.
Entires are regularly received from Fremantle residents. We understand , for example, that leading Fremantle-based sculptor Greg James and his studio of artists will be entering this year.
The main Castaways Sculpture Awards Exhibition will be held at the Rockingham Beach Foreshore alongside the Schools Exhibition.
The Maquette and Small Sculpture Exhibition, in its second year, will be held at the nearby Rockingham Arts Centre.
Selected artworks will be exhibited for nine days from Saturday 24 October to Sunday 1 November 2020.
Hopefully, by then, covid will be largely behind us and the local Rockingham State MP, the Premier Mark McGowan, will have ensured we can all attend!
There are more than $25,000 in non-acquisitive prizes to be won, including the $10,000 Major Award for overall excellence in sculpture featuring recycled or repurposed aluminium.
Entries for the Main Exhibition opened Tuesday 3 March and close Friday 19 June 2020.
Entries for the Maquette and Small Sculpture Exhibition and Castaways Schools Competition open Tuesday 2 June and close Friday 14 August 2020.
