If you’re heading to Scenic World in the Blue Mountains this holidays you’re in for a super treat.
More than 35 art works from 40 world-class artists will be on display along a 2.4km trail at Scenic World April 13 to May 13.
Sculpture at Scenic World 2018, now in its seventh year, aims to make art accessible to everyone by taking it outside the white walls of the gallery and into the public domain.
Families can take advantage of free public programs including guided tours, artist talks, weekend workshops, and a kids’ arts guide.
Kayo is one of the artists featured. The talented Blue Mountains glass artist has exhibited her creations all over the globe.
Kayo’s entry to Sculpture at Scenic World, titled I want Up, will bring a smile to everyone’s faces. The colourful hand-crafted glass balloons, positioned carefully in the trees, are designed to evoke memories of childhood.
“I want Up! to take viewers on a journey and strip back the layers of daily life to bring back happy memories from the past,” Kayo says.
“Happiness is the most important thing of life and I want all of my artworks to make people smile,” she said. “You can cry by yourself, but you can’t laugh by yourself… life is better shared with others.”
Keep a look out for spiderwebs, birds and all sorts of fabulous sculptures in the bush before taking a ride on the Scenic Railway down to the valley floor.
