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 Tuesday 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.
Gravity Wins

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.

Such a diverse range of works Marina. I like Da Bird in particular for its purity and simplicity.

Please give precise details as to where the indoor sculptures exhibition is situated. We looked around last year at the time it was supposed to be open and could not find it there are so many big buildings around that area.
