Sculpture on the Edge is a renowned annual sculpture competition hosted by Arts Connect Inc in the scenic Sunshine Coast Hinterland. In 2023 the exhibition of selected entries by artists from near and far will be displayed at Flaxton Gardens, one of the Sunshine Coast’s most scenic wedding and events venues with panoramic views of the coastline from Noosa to Caloundra. Artworks include indoor and outdoor sculptures across a variety of media and the winning artist will be awarded the $10,000 first prize, generously donated by Flaxton Gardens.

Now in its 13th year, Sculpture on the Edge continues to grow and will feature a wide selection of artworks for all ages to appreciate. Thanks to generous support from our sponsors, donors and event partner, Flaxton Gardens, the event is an outstanding cultural experience for art lovers and visitors. The 2023 program includes the annual exhibition, workshops, artist talks and special events to create a deeply immersive creative experience for everyone to enjoy.

Arts Connect Inc is a volunteer run, membership based not for profit group generously supported by the Sunshine Coast Council, the Sunshine Coast Arts Foundation, our sponsors and donors who make this event possible.

Tax-deductible donations can be made through Sunshine Coast Arts Foundation.
