Poison Creek Sculpture Project is our passion.
If it makes you dance, its sculpture!
Welcome to the Poison Creek Sculpture Project, our evolving sculpture adventure in stunning Central Otago. In 2015 we became guardians of a 15 hectare property on rugged former farmland in the Queensberry Hills. The amenities comprised a former boatbuilder's shed and a domestic water supply. We wasted no time beginning our journey towards the establishment of the Poison Creek Sculpture Project as a place of solitude for selected sculptors and other artists to send time, and as a location to exhibit sculpture in the wild, with our living quarters doubling as a modest indoor space for showing small works and maquettes. More recently we have welcomed guests to Whare Iti, our purpose built visitor accommodation for singles and couples in a special secluded spot.
At Poison Creek Sculpture Project we are dedicated to supporting Aotearoa New Zealand's finest sculptors. Alongside the residency we run public events and workshops which offer opportunities to engage with sculpture. We also support sculptors to sell their work.
