Melville Mayor Russell Aubrey opened the event and announced the winner of the $1500 Sculpture Walk Prize, Kathy Allam, for her artwork Blooop.
Judges commented the work was a resolved form and an evocative exploration of familiar materials, noting that it conveyed a sense of poetry in its form, responding well to natural light, with the promise of artificial lighting being equally rewarding.
The $1500 Functional Sculpture Prize winner was Sarah Wilkinson for her sculpture A Wild Tale, which functions as a mermaid tail photo-prop.
The judges said the work was fun, cheeky, well-constructed and conceived.
Burrendah Primary School took the Schools Prize for its piece Many Cultures, One Voice – Nest of Maali.
Judges commented on the excellent use of materials and that the work was beautifully conceived with a restrained palette, letting the colours and materials work to convey the story of the school.
Mayor Aubrey said the City�s annual Sculpture Walk gave the community a special opportunity to enjoy exciting art to which they might not otherwise be exposed.
�This exhibition also gives our talented local artists and school students an opportunity to participate in a unique exhibition and showcase their art,� he said.
�Thank you also to our sponsor, the Melville Times, for their continued support to bring this popular event to the community each year.�
