The Newport Sculpture Trail-Blazers 2017 is an annual art event, running over 2 weeks, that promotes sculpture, northern beaches artists, local businesses and the community of Newport village. This year’s trail will run from the 22nd of September to the 9th of October 2017 and for the first time will include performance, sound and installation artworks as well as sculpture.
This will be the 5th year of this art event, previously known as the Newport Sculpture Trail, co-founded by Patsy Clayton-Fry and Chris Riou. This year’s event will be managed by our team here at Sydney Art Space and co-founder Patsy Clayton-Fry will remain on board as the event’s public liaisons officer.
