Toorak Village traders presented 97 sculptures to the public in our beautiful shop windows and along the pavements of Toorak Rd. 88 new artists were selected for the 17th year to carefully display their sculptures alongside the 9 permanent sculptures purchesed by businesses and us over the years. The public far and wide come to walk the street and enjoy the sculptures and our Village with many stopping and buying sculptures for their homes and gardens.
Sculptures were judged by Geoffrey Bartlett, one of Australias highest profile sculptors, with 3 (non-acquisitive) awards presented to; Marynes Avila, Owen Hammond and Takahiko Sugawara at an opening presentation in Toorak Village.
