It’s a packed weekend of events in the Snowy Mountains this Easter. Here’s our guide to all the fun that’s on offer:
Lake Light Sculpture, Banjo Paterson Park, Jindabyne, April 19 to 22
Lake Light Sculpture is an inspiring outdoor sculpture event set amidst the stunning foreshore of Lake Jindabyne and the Snowy Mountains.
Sculptures are displayed in an evocative setting on the water edge, a living studio for artworks but as night falls the real magic happens.
Illumination has, since the festival’s inception, been a defining element of Lake Light Sculpture, and the sculptures are lit from sunset to 10 pm each night. Artists embed lighting, reflection and optical tricks into their sculptures to play on the light of Easter’s full moon. The effect is dramatic, transforming already interesting sculptures and revealing hidden elements.
Artists of every calibre are on show – including professionals, experienced and emerging artists, community groups, and local tradesmen.
Visit the Lake Light tent near the Strzelecki Monument at Banjo Paterson Park to collect a program for a gold coin donation and participate in voting for the People’s Choice Award.
