With two new works installed in early February, the Snowy Valleys Sculpture Trail has grown to 30 permanent works across seven locations along 100km of the Snowy Valleys Way in southern New South Wales just to the west of the Australian Snowy Mountains.

The new artworks are ‘The Family – Sign OZ 863 / Sign Oz 864 / Sign Oz 865’ by Andreas Buisman of Austria at Courabyra Wines and ‘Heads It Is’ by Paul Caporn of Western Australia on the lawns of Café Nest at Tumbarumba.

Joining us for the unveiling of these new artworks was Hanne Bache, President of the Friendship Society of Denmark, Australia and New Zealand, who travelled to the Snowy Valleys with her husband, Professor Emeritus Carl Bache, to see the three sculptures gifted to the people of the Snowy Valleys in December 2021 by the Friendship Society in a gesture of international friendship in response to the Black Summer fires. A plaque to commemorate Hanne’s visit was unveiled on the Tumbarumba Creekscape near the sculpture ‘Together We Are Strong’ by Keld Moseholm of Denmark.

The latest Shop Art Project ‘Walking in Isolation’ by Eastern Riverina photographer Dr James Farley and poet Dr Lachlan Brown has opened in Tumbarumba.
