Applications now open

After a wonderfully successful inaugural exhibition in May 2023, Sculptures at Scratchley is returning in May 2024. The overall response from both artists and the viewing public was, “We want Sculptures at Scratchley to return and continue.”

The fort structure and surrounding 360° vista offers a remarkable venue for artists to show off their sculptures. With easy access for the public we had over 25,000 people come through the gate purchasing over a third of the sculptures on display.

This year, Sculptures at Scratchley will also be utilising the Fort Scratchley Function Centre for their displays. This venue will provide a secure, undercover area for artists to have their displays. With so much space now available, we have been able to extend the artist application date to the 10th of March.

This year with the professional media company, Out of the Square media donating their expertise, the public awareness will be even broader.

We look forward to seeing your submissions, all the best.
