McClelland Sculpture Park + Gallery Information
McClelland Sculpture Park + Gallery was established in 1971 under the terms of the Will of Annie May (Nan) McClelland in honour of her brother Harry McClelland, an artist and philanthropist who owned the property and played an instrumental role in the development of the arts community in Victoria.
Set in sixteen hectares of bush and landscaped gardens in Langwarrin, four kilometres East of Frankston on the Mornington Peninsula, McClelland attracts thousands of people each year and the sculpture park which showcases over 100 works by major artists, such as: Norma Redpath, Inge King, Lenton Parr, Anthony Pryor, Lisa Roet, Clement Meadmore, Geoffrey Bartlett, Bruce Armstrong, and Peter Corlett to name a few.
McClelland has three indoor galleries which accommodate displays from its extensive permanent collection of works on paper, painting, photography and sculptures as well as touring exhibitions. The establishment of the Elisabeth Murdoch Sculpture Foundation in 1989 was the catalyst for the development of a substantial sculptural collection. McClelland is committed to the development of sculpture in Australia and is the home of the biennial McClelland Survey and Award for outdoor sculpture.
McClelland Sculpture Park + Gallery's public and educational programs aim to engender greater understanding of contemporary art with a focus on sculpture and nature. McClelland Gallery + Sculpture Park's guided tours, programs and school holiday workshops relate to the exhibitions and are a valuable resource for students and teachers. McClelland Gift Shop stocks a fine collection of art books, jewellery and objects d'art.
Stroll around the native gardens, come to McClelland Café and have a wonderful glass of wine with delicious meals enjoying the vista of the lake and the native birds. Book your special function, wedding or corporate event by calling the Gallery. Special guided tours and lunch packages also available.
