Exhibition Summary

Ephemera has grown over the years to be loved not only locally, but to be an outdoor seaside sculpture exhibition of state and national significance. The outdoor sculpture event was established by Townsville City Council in 2001 to provide regional artists with an opportunity to showcase their talent within a national arena, with a focus on works being ‘ephemeral’ for the short-lived exhibition.

For the past 20 years, this biennial exhibition has been called Strand Ephemera, but this year the exhibition received a refresh to Ephemera: Seaside Sculptures. What a better year to refresh than in its 20th year, marking a milestone in the history of our much loved exhibition.
