McClelland Sculpture Park+Gallery is celebrated as the home of Australian sculpture. With a wide-ranging collection of more than 100 sculptures, the park comprises 8ha of designed landscape and vast areas of indigenous bushland. McClelland’s light-filled café overlooks the sculpture park and serves innovative dishes with delicious produce from the Mornington Peninsula. The exhibition program focuses on the development of modern sculpture and various forms of spatial practice, and encourages contemporary artists to develop and address challenging issues current in Australia and a global context.

To be held every three years, the Splash McClelland Contemporary Watercolour Award has been established to showcase contemporary Australian watercolour practice. It is an acquisitive award enabled by the Fornari Bequest, by the will of the late Lena May Fornari, and is a legacy of her support of the arts in Victoria. Lena May was an ardent collector of watercolours and the first acquisitions through this bequest were significant watercolour paintings. Continuing this tradition, Splash presents the work of contemporary Australian artists who use this medium in highly accomplished and innovative ways. 

The Splash McClelland Contemporary Watercolour Award is on until March 17.
