The sculptures are back for your visit by the sea
This community event is now a summer must-do outing in Adelaide. We are now right up there with the best sculptures by the sea events in Australia, with Melbourne, Sydney and Perth all holding fantastic events.
We have some talented artists here in South Australia. Always on show are some latest works by the Manning family, who as individual artists do some large and stunning pieces. Local sculptor Kim Bellette, who lives down by the sea, has his small sandstone works. There is a wide variety from many local artists showing us their unique creations.

There is always something different to see. Many of the artworks on display are by professional artists who have sold their work internationally, so at this event you have the opportunity to see some superb art.
Here is piece from this year's display. It was months of work by artist J to create this large giraffe he has called Rita.

Brighton Jetty Sculptures runs day and night, but to view the indoor smaller pieces in the marquee and indoors at the Surf Club, you need to see these during the day, as they close at 5pm. But if you can only make it in the evening, it is a lovely stroll along the esplanade with gentle breezes to cool you. Sculptures are on both sides of the jetty. The surf club is across the road from the jetty.
I like the seaside-themed art. Remember it is all for sale, so support our artist community. Image by Kat May.
This is a wonderful event to take all ages. Kids love it and you can swim in the sea after. Older folk take their time and there is plenty of seating along the way. All the paths are wheelchair and stroller accessible.
