Sculpture on the Peninsula

After a 20-year run, the team behind the dream of the late Geoff Swinard has decided to call it quits.

Back in 2000 when Geoff decided to host a sculpture exhibition in his Governors Bay garden, sell the works and donate the proceeds to Cholmondeley Children’s Centre he could not have known that he would sadly pass away 18 months later. His legacy however lives on with his friends and family delivering the event every two years thereafter and subsequently donating more than $750,000 to the children’s home.

Re-scheduled from late last year, the event will be held on January 28, 29 and 30.

If you have been before, you’ll know what a wonderful event this is. If you haven’t visited the largest sculpture exhibition in the South Island, don’t miss the last Sculpture on the Peninsula. Amazing works from 72 artists will be installed in outbuildings, paddocks and woodland areas of the picturesque Loudon Farm, Teddington. All sculptures on display are for sale.

Tickets to the Grand Opening, on Friday January 28, ($90 per person) must be pre-purchased. Along with fine food, beverages and entertainment, guests get first dibs on all sculptures, and the chance to bid for 12 unique works created by local artists.

Vaccination passes are a requirement of entry for everyone aged 12 and over. For tickets and additional information visit:
