Bermagui sculptures bring an edge of mongrel

* Graffiti artist Phibs to impress on a grand scale

BERMAGUI’S Sculpture on the Edge always creates plenty of interest among exhibitors and the public.

One of the sculptures that attracted a lot of interest was by Canberra artist Amanda Stuart.

Ms Stuart’s 2008 exhibit, called “Mongrel Country”, was hugely popular.

This piece went on to Sculpture by the Sea in Sydney and then Aarhus in Denmark.

Ms Stuart missed the event in 2012 and 2013, as a PhD had been occupying her time and she was also given a public commission at Civic in Canberra.

However, she is back again this year, for a fifth time, to showcase her talent, returning with a new revamped Mongrel Country in bronze, led fittingly by a Red Dog and other wonderful work, including a boat and morphing shearers' cots.

These pieces are sure to create talking points.

One of these pieces, called Year of the Watersnake, is a large canoe with a snakeskin-like texture and was made late last year for a curated show in the ACT.

Sculpture on the Edge opens on Saturday, with large pieces featuring on Endeavour Point Headland and Horseshoe Bay.

Smaller works will be exhibited in the Bermagui Community Centre.

Ms Stuart will have her own “pop-up” exhibition at Shop 1/2 Lamont St.
