Sculpture by the Sea
Sculpture by the Sea at Cottesloe Beach, Perth was an absolute success this year. Over 70 local, interstate and international artists transformed Perth's most popular beach into a stunning sculpture park overlooking the Indian Ocean with some of the most glorious sunsets of any major city in the world. Curtin alumna Elaine Clocherty, Bachelor of Arts (Art) (1997), was one of the two artists who received the Western Australia Sculptor Scholarship for her sculpture 'Overnight'. The Scholarship is to be used for travel, study and advancement of the artist's career and includes an invitation to the Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi 2014 exhibition in New South Wales, Australia.
