COTTESLOE DECADE CLUB ARTISTS
It is a significant commitment for an artist to exhibit in Sculpture by the Sea once. To exhibit with us many times means the artist has committed much of their career to creating new sculptures for our exhibitions, almost always at considerable personal financial risk, as well as the artists risk of putting their work on display outdoors before their peers, the public and the critics.
To recognise the commitment of those artists who have exhibited in Sculpture by the Sea, Cottesloe 10 times or more we created our Decade Club. It has now become a tradition. In February each year we hold a dinner where each new member is welcomed and where they tell their story. To thank each of the artists who are currently members of the Decade Club we have included an image of one of their works and a comment of what Sculpture by the Sea means to them.
