Sculptures by the Wharf has just opened and will run until November 30th. There is a small but delightful indoor gallery but you can also find sculptures dotted around the wharf.

If you want to see the indoor exhibition, go on Sunday or Wednesday between 10 am and 2 pm. It's a lovely exhibition in many mediums and you can combine it with a walk along the wharf or a meal at one of the restaurants there, not to mention shopping in some of the choice shops in the area.

I have to say that being a woman of a certain age, my vote went to
"Gravity Wins" a delightful bronze by Lainie Cooper Taverne. She says: "Gravity Wins is a reflection of the inevitable effect time and gravity has on a woman's body. Acceptance of self despite the ravage of time is something that is both confrontational yet comfortable."

I marvelled at the beauty of this sculpture by Indigenous artist, Colleen Lavender.

Margaret Shaw is the creator - she used slate, fused glass ceramic and lead on a recycled steel base. The colours and the shape are just evocative of the richness of sea life that we have to strive hard to preserve.

Bill Gale has said of this piece "Oh, what a tangled web we weave."

Claudje Lecompte in this piece talks of the wild creatures which inhabit our lives.

Hermann Schraut has turned a piece of wood into a beautiful bird.

The family-friendly exhibition will run from September 17 to November 30, with an indoor display open on Sundays and Wednesday from 10am to 2pm. A lot of the items are on sale and you can also vote for your favourite piece.
