Edith Cowan University (ECU) is proud to again be a partner of Sculpture by the Sea, Cottesloe 2022.

ECU’s partnership with Sculpture by the Sea, Cottesloe, now in its sixth year, provides excellent opportunities for Visual Arts students to gain practical experience, including an artist mentee relationship and an internship placement.

This year’s mentee is Timothy Keevil (pictured left). Timothy is currently studying a Bachelor of Arts Honours at ECU. As part of the Sculpture by the Sea partnership with ECU he will undertake a mentor program under Perth-based artist Paul Caporn.

“The mentorship with Paul came at a perfect time,” said Timothy.

“I’m currently studying honours at ECU. It’s a reflective time for me analysing myself, my art practice and the kind art I want to do. We have had 3 meetings so far. Paul has been extremely generous with his time and hard earned knowledge. His insightful feedback on my praxis has been very helpful.’

Bachelor of Contemporary Arts student Donna Black (pictured right) has secured an internship at Sculpture by the Sea. The program will involve a number of one-on-one sessions spent learning about and observing various aspects of staging the world-class outdoor sculpture exhibition, such as design, installation and administration.

And it’s not just students taking part in this year’s event – with four ECU Alumni exhibiting at Sculpture by the Sea, Cottesloe 2022: Tom de Munk-Kerkmeer, ‘Spin’; Norton Flavel, ‘Figurative Abstraction’; Miik Green, ‘Untitled621’ and Stephanie De Biasi with her joint piece, ‘Fossil’, created with Carolina Aersenii.
