The Brick Bay Sculpture Trail near Matakana showcases contemporary sculpture by established and emerging artists. Experience sculpture in a remarkable landscape framed by towering native trees and majestic palms, abundant birdlife and green pastures all overlooking the celebrated Brick Bay Vineyard.
This is a unique outdoor gallery experience, where an ever-changing display of 25 to 30 works are sensitively sited along the 2km track. The trail is an easy one hour’s walk suitable for most ages and abilities.
Designed by Noel Lane, the Glass House acts as a gateway to the Sculpture Trail and includes a resource centre where visitors can browse through art publications and the Brick Bay Sculpture archive at leisure.
The Brick Bay Sculpture Trust operates as a charitable trust, with surplus revenue being available to assist selected artists in meeting the considerable expense of building outdoor works.
Sculptures presented are new works selected by a curatorial panel and all works are for sale. Exhibits change regularly as sold works are replaced.
Just 60 minutes north of Auckland.
Open 7 days from 10am until 5pm.
Please allow an hour to enjoy the trail.
