We are delighted to announce that the NZ Sculpture OnShore Fisher Funds People's Choice was Humpback Whale by Jack Marsden-Mayer. This is Jack's second consecutive People's Choice award at the exhibition.
Curator Rob Garrett said he hoped there would be "something for everybody" in this year's exhibition and it seems visitors agreed; taking the time to cast their vote for a whopping 90 sculptures out of the exhibition's total of 108 artworks!
S. Chignall, Auckland.
To everyone who visited NZ Sculpture OnShore; to all our dedicated volunteers (around 200 this time) and of course to our talented artists - this year's exhibition is looking like being one of most successful, and we thank you.
We are taking a little break over Christmas, but will be back in the New Year with news about the event's success and a brand new gallery of photos from the exhibition.
In the meantime, you will find lots of photos on our FaceBook page, and on instagram #nzsculptureonshore.

A Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
'Feed the Kids Too', by Donna Turtle Sarten and Bernie Harfleet has been one of the most popular works at the exhibition, with visitors not only enjoying the sights and sounds of 6,000 lunchboxes in the trees, but also contributing to the project to fill them with a lunch for school children who do not have one.
You can still help with this project.
