Sunshine and whales... What a difference a day makes! After three days of wild storms, this morning early visitors to the exhibition were greeted by a beautiful sunrise and the extra surprise of two separate pods of whales frolicking off the point at Marks Park. The park itself is now full of school groups enjoying the sculptures, and the weather for the weekend is predicted to be fine again. In today's email we are featuring a number of the prize winning sculptures from the 2008 exhibition.

The awards were judged by Terence Maloon, Curator of Special Exhibitions at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, and were announced at the Opening Night of the Exhibition.
