Lorne Sculpture Exhibition 2009
by Ian Macrae
About the Book
The sculptures in this book are the work of some of Australasia’s most innovative artists. They came together via the determination of a small community on Australia’s south-east surf coast who wanted exciting contemporary sculpture pieces to grace their beautiful Louttit Bay shoreline.
More than just a sculpture exhibition, this event brought art to the people, and melded the Lorne community, big business, government at all levels and visitors from around the globe.
