Ship Of Fools, Sculpture Anchored In Gulf

Fletcher Vaughan's Ship Of Fools

At last. A good reason to go to Waiheke Island that isn't of the jazz festival, wine festival, dance party at a vineyard, hope-you-make-the-last-ferry ilk. The Headland Sculptures On The Gulf exhibition is more than likely the most impressive outdoor sculpture exhibition yet staged in New Zealand with works from 26 sculptors and artists on display. The 2009 exhibition is the fourth in a series which began in 2003 and has quickly become a drawcard on the island. What better way to see art than to wander around the gentle island cliffs perusing the artworks framed against the Hauraki Gulf. We are particularly excited to see that Fletcher Vaughan, whose work appears in the latest issue of Black Magazine, is an entrant this year with a work entitled Ship Of Fools.
