Introducing Sculpture in an Orange Garden (SOG)
Jane Tyack: Horse – an entrant in the 2018 SOG
SOG is a two day selling sculpture exhibition held in a country garden in Orange NSW. It’s aim is to give established and emerging sculptors the opportunity to display their work in an amazing garden during Orange F.O.O.D WEEK. There is a children’s component too so even young sculptors can get involved.
The inaugural event was held in APRIL 2018 and was a great success. Over 2000 people visited and over 200 sculptures were on display with over 40% sold. So it was a great event for visitors and sculptors alike!
SOG is the initiative of the Friends of Orange Regional Gallery (FORG). FORG is a volunteer organisation whose aim is to support The Orange Regional Gallery and to promote art in the Orange area.
