A highly anticipated outdoor art exhibition will return to Pemberton next week, open to art lovers and artists alike. Hosted among the lush green vines of Pemberley of Pemberton’s vineyard, the biannual Sculpture in the Vines will showcase sculptors of varying skill levels from across Western Australia. The exhibition — run by the Pemberton Arts Group in conjunction with Pemberley — will be opened by Regional Development Minister Don Punch on Saturday, April 22 when more than nine artists will be recognised for their work. Judging of the artwork will be completed by senior lecturer in the School of Design and Art at Curtin University Ann Schilo. Pemberton Arts Group chair and co-ordinator Anna Czerkasow said the exhibition originally started as part of the Unearthed Pemberton Festival, however, while the vibrant festival did not survive, the exhibition certainly did. “It’s a beautiful time of year after harvest in the vineyard and it’s fantastic to see the sculptures there among the vines,” she said. “There are youth category prizes included in the exhibition and the quality of students entering this year is exceptional.” The exhibition will be open to the public from April 21 until April 30 between 11am and 4pm at Pemberley of Pemberton.
