Local Heroes: Glenlyon Annual Sculpture Show

"Glenlyon Annual Sculpture Show is an indoor/outdoor exhibition held at - and around - the Glenlyon Shire Hall."

Now in its third year, "the exhibition is a showcase of the hobby, emerging and established sculptors" in the district. (Source:

This year's Competition was judged by professional sculptor Julie Collins, also incorporating a Peoples Choice Award, First and Second Prizes, and Encouragement Awards.

The opening on October 30 was very well-attended with healthy crowds visiting the exhibition at the historic, picturesque Shire Hall throughout the week.

Glenlyon locals Magali Gentric and Jason Waterhouse from Stockroom were also involved, with Magali on the organising committee (she did heaps!!) with Jason volunteering as exhibition curator.

They were both pleased to be able to contribute to the local community, by supporting and assisting with this popular local community art event. A lot of hard work went into making it a great success, and there were a huge amount of entries with some great work on display.

Stockroom is also a sponsor of another upcoming community art event. Stockroom will
sponsor the $200 cash ‘First Prize’ at the 150th Grand Annual Kyneton Agricultural Show ‘Ag Art’ Exhibition & Competition, to be held November 20th, 2010.

The Glenlyon Sculpture Show ran from October 30 - November 7, 2010. See samples of the work from this year's show on Stockroom's Facebook.
