Hillview Sculpture Biennial 2018 will feature around 120 outdoor and indoor sculptures. Drawing upon talent from the local and wider community, the exhibition will allow visitors from the district and beyond to explore and interact with contemporary sculpture surrounded by Hillview's magnificent cultural landscape.  Hillview takes art from the walled gallery into the open air and beyond, allowing it to be seen in new light, and playfully contrasting the natural surroundings. Artworks are available for purchase, supporting the artists in their practice.  Hillview is deeply rooted in the Southern Highlands community, and is a chance for the district as a whole to strengthen it's love for art and attract new visitors from surrounding and distant regions.


Hillview Sculpture Biennial is a stimulating and considered exhibition of contemporary sculpture in the iconic grounds of historic Hillview.  Superbly located at Sutton Forest in the Southern Highlands of NSW, Hillview is steeped in history and was the former Vice Regal summer retreat of NSW Governors from the 1880s to the 1950s. The Biennial transforms the property into a carefully curated space where local, national and international artists exhibit their artworks throughout the grounds and buildings of this heritage listed property.
