Shannon Novak, 2019


Our Patron VIP Programme includes immediate family members as well as children and grandchildren.

Pre-Opening Events

We offer a number of events prior to the opening of the Sculpture on The Gulf exhibition.
Patron Only Curatorial Preview
Meet the Selectors
  • Join the SOTG Board to meet the curatorial selectors over a glass of wine in the year prior to the event.
  • Be the first to hear about the selection of artists and their proposed works.
Individual Artist Support
Artist Alignment
  • Option to align a portion of your donation with an artist/work.
  • Recognition on the sculpture plaque/trail notes, in the catalogue and online.
VIP First Right To Buy Works
Art Pre-purchase / Hold Option
  • Patrons have the first option to pre-purchase or put a hold on art works prior-to or during the event.
  • Putting a hold on an artwork gives you 'first right of refusal' should someone else express an interest in the work.
Family Event Tour

  • In February we will host a family event for children/grandchildren of Patrons at the iconic Connells Bay Sculpture Park.
  • A participating SOTG artist will work with the children on a special project.
