Palmer Sculpture Biennial unveils hidden Gems across a stunning 400-acre Landscape

The Palmer Sculpture Biennial is a free, not-for-profit event showcasing sculptures by Australian artists. With rolling hills and rocky outcrops, the scenery creates a striking setting for the artist’s creations.

Now one of Australia’s longest, continually running sculpture exhibitions, a swag of returning visitors make the trip to Palmer, just east of the Adelaide Hills, to experience this unique event.

The artists run the biennial, and rather than aiming to show many works, the emphasis is on quality, artistic merit, and the way the pieces interact with the Australian environment. A high priority of the exhibition is that visitors should be able to engage with sculpture and place.

This year’s honoured artist is Stelarc from Victoria, who will be collaborating with South Australian emerging artist Anika Gardner. Other artists include leading and upcoming sculptors from South Australia, interstate and even overseas.

The 2024 Biennial opened on Saturday, March 16 and will be open every weekend from 11am to 5:30pm and Wednesday afternoons from 2pm to 5:30pm until April 14.
