‘Sacred Lily Series’ by Rose Petterson, 2010.

Set against the backdrop of the Kaipara Harbour, visitors can view 60 inspiring sculptural works as they walk the winding 1km trail through a secluded valley containing a slice of almost every type of iconic New Zealand landscape: manicured lawns, citrus orchards, grassy slopes, regenerating bush, old farm fences, pine forest, potagers, and ponds.

Sculptural works made from wood, stone, recycled materials, clay, steel and  plastic by contemporary New Zealand artists have been selected and developed for each context to make mini-galleries within the valley. Artists whose work features in the 2012 exhibition include Anna Korver, Christian Nicolson, Jin Ling, Matthew Williams, Rose Petterson, Darryl Fagence, Sally Lush and Trish Clarke.
