Defiance Sculpture Park at The Gate Gallery

The Gate Gallery is excited to announce that Defiance Sculpture Park at The Gate Gallery in Wollombi Valley was officially opened on 29th September 2012 by John McDonald. Wollombi is a beautiful and historic country town only 1.45 hours north of Sydney en route to the Hunter Valley.


The Gate Gallery and Defiance Gallery, run by Campbell Robertson-Swann and Lauren Harvey, have joined forces to establish a permanent sculpture park of national significance. Forty outdoor works by prominent and emerging Australian sculptors are placed throughout the beautiful gardens of The Gate Gallery.  Defiance also curates four indoor exhibitions annually at The Gate Gallery. These shows feature smaller works by the exhibiting sculptors alongside a selection of paintings by leading Sydney artists.
We are also pleased to announce our partnership with Noyce Brothers Wines, a leading winemaker in the Wollombi Valley with a cellar door in the centre of town.  Visitors will be able to enjoy wine tasting at The Gate Gallery during Gallery opening hours. All exhibition openings at The Gate Gallery, Wollombi and Defiance Gallery, Sydney will be sponsored by Noyce Brothers Wines.
