This year’s Wildflower Art and Garden Festival will be held at the Ku-ring-gai Wildflower Garden.
After the success of the inaugural Sculpture Walk at Ku-ring-gai Council’s Wildflower Art and Garden Festival last year, the environmentally- themed walk will be on again.
A total pool of AUD5,000 in prize money will be offered to works that adhere to the theme of ‘Environmental Sustainability’. Artists and sculptors are asked to demonstrate the use of recycled materials in their artworks, which should be sympathetic to the Garden’s bushland environment.
Additionally artists will be encouraged to paint ‘en plein air’ during the Festival and the event will host a variety of art and craft stalls in the expanded Artisan’s Market.
Other features of this year’s Festival include talks by horticultural experts, native plant sales, wildflower displays, guided walks, exhibits by local businesses, food and drink stalls, a trackless train, pond dip netting, music and dance, children’s craft workshops, story-telling and an Australian wildlife display.
