The 16th Annual Lambing Flat Sculpture, Wood & Big Art Exhibition -

Excitement builds as we kick off the 2024 Hilltops Off the Beaten Track Art & Cultural Trail with the 16th Annual Lambing Flat Sculpture, Wood & Big Art Exhibition!  A dazzling prelude of what's to come.

Entries have come in from talented artists across the region which promises a show of creativity that will leave you inspired.  We extend a warm invitation to Hilltops community members and beyond.  Please join us at this inspiring exhibition.

Exciting Guest Artist:

This year, as featured artist, Young Society of Artists is proud to host renowned Sydney sculptor, painter, and land artist, Keith Chidzey.  Keith transitioned to the realm of art from a career in dentistry. He completed a Masters Research Degree in Sculpture, Performance, and Installation at the College of Fine Arts (University of New South Wales).

Keith says “The land, its interpretation, and issues surrounding its usage and intervention have been a recurring theme throughout my work. My university research cantered around fire, and refinement through fire, its controllability, its significance, and its aesthetic, and hypnotic qualities.”

Live Music:

The soulful melodies of singer-songwriter Judy Barker will set the mood for the evening.  You can experience Judy's mesmerising sound along with her artworks on her YouTube channel. You can also learn more about Judy's story, courtesy of Southern Tablelands Arts at Judy Barker's Story.

Food and Wine:

While you soak in the inspiring artworks and the soothing sounds, treat yourself to a "taste of the Hilltops" at our complimentary local grazing table, accompanied with a glass of fine local wine.
