Sculpture in the Paddock

Sculpture in the Paddock is staged in the beautiful surrounds of the National Trust property ‘Cooma Cottage’, once home of the famous Australian born colonial explorer Hamilton Hume.

Within its first two years, ‘Sculpture in the Paddock’ has been hugely successful and garnered media attention nationally via television, radio, press and social media. Both newcomers and award winning sculptors have taken part and this year the event is exploring new avenues whilst still being located in the pastoral splendour that is the historic National Trust property, ‘Cooma Cottage’.

We would like to thank the National Trust (NSW) for hosting ‘Sculpture in the Paddock’ and wish to acknowledge the past and present traditional owners of the land, the Ngunnawal people.


OPENING NIGHT: ‘Sculpture in the Paddock’ will be officially opened on Friday 15th September, by Elizabeth Rogers, (CEO Regional Arts NSW).  Opening at 6.15.  Paddock open from 5.30 to view the Sculptures.

MC: Helen Musa Arts Journalist and Critic
