SCULPTURE By the Sea is a new path to beachside art for those in wheelchairs who will have matting at Cottesloe Beach during two access days this Wednesday and Thursday.

“It will be amazing for him as he’s been brought up by the beach,” Nulsen Disability Services carer Pat Conwell said about the planned first visit to the annual exhibition by her client Malcolm Stewart.

The mats will cover paths through the exhibits across several hundred metres of beach, and have been provided by the Disabled Surfers Association of WA.

Mothers with prams and those with walking difficulties will also be able to walk on routes over the sand to see the art.

“We’ve had massive evening crowds, because with the hot days people have been staying at home and coming out in the evening,” exhibition director David Hanley said.

The access days will be staffed by assistants from 10am to 7pm. Other tactile tours are available at various times by contacting connla#dadaa.org.au.

Sculptures by the Sea is on until March 20.
