Artists are asked to apply to exhibit in the Palmer Sculpture Biennial. If accepted, they make, deliver and install their works at their own cost.

Sandy Mulchay's "Red Chairs" in a paddock near Lake Alexandrina,
from her 2010 Farm Gate artwork installation. The artist on location, 24th March 2012.
Greg said he had 300 visitors through the gate at Palmer the other day. Big mob for the Badlands, but like even the biggest sculptures, that spooky landscape just eats 'em up. It's no country for old men. Since he took all the stock off it, that hard rain shadow ground is beginning to re-produce a rich range of native grasses.
"Meeting's Over: Safe and Sound, High and Dry Inside the Lectric Fence", is dedicated to the Murray Darling Basin Authority. But that's my naming. It is actually Sandy Mulchay sitting in the remnants of her Red Chairs installation from the year before last. Suddenly, there she was, sitting in the chairs nobody's yet pinched, with that cool short-arse rainbow squeezing some feed out of the last dim rays.
Another perfect day well had by experts.
