TV installation on the beach of Lorne


In October 2005 a meeting of Friends of Lorne Arts met at Graeme Wilkie’s Qdos Art Gallery to discuss his long held dream to stage a world-class sculpture exhibition along the dramatic sweep of Lorne’s famous foreshore. This resulted in overwhelming support from the community and regional authorities, and the formation of Lorne Sculpture Exhibition Inc.

A Committee team led by Jack and Cynthia Wynhoven set up the inaugural exhibition called ‘The Littoral Edge’ in 2007, and renowned Australian Art Historian and Lecturer Ken Scarlett was appointed as Curator.


The first Lorne Sculpture Exhibition was acclaimed by the Australian sculpture world, the local community, critics and artists alike as an important new showcase for contemporary sculpture for both local and international artists.


The Lorne Sculpture Biennale is not-for-profit event. Sculpture is an expensive medium to work in, therefore LSB provides a range of grants to all participating artists.


This free public event relies entirely on the generosity of private and corporate sponsorship, government grants, our patrons, memberships and donations to fund this important event.
