The event in it's 14th year was expected to attract 220 thousand visitors to the beach during the two weeks from the 2nd to the 19th March and had the participation of 70 national and international artists.
I managed to pop by to visit the sculptures on Thursday 15th after work to avoid the crowds on the closing weekend and I've made a few collages of the ones I found most impressive.
Made by Singapore based Australian artist B.Jane Cowie, "Swirling Around" is a dome shaped structure made up of 999 glass fish that reflected the sunlight beautifully.
She was the winner of the People's Choice Award with the prize of $5000.
WA artists Rima Zabaneh and Berenice Rarig received the Sculpture by the Sea Exhibiting Artist's Award for their innovative zip tie tree sculpture "Ziptide".
One of my favourites, "Waiting in the wings" won the artist Denise Pepper $2000 for the Kid's Choice Award.
Other wonderful and quirky sculptures abounded on the large stretch of sand and on the pier.
"Damien Hirst looking for sharks" by Danger Dave and Christian Ranger was one of the most popular, I'm surprised it didn't win an award.
Here you can see an artist that was painting it on his small canvas.
"Sunny Moon" by Zadok Ben-David.
"Furball" by Lucy Barker was made of intertwined cables.
"Capsule" by Tony Davis
"In Rainbows" by Duncan Stemler.
"Disc Vane" by Ivan Black
