Gomboc Gallery has won a number of awards over the years for its contribution to West Australian arts
Gomboc Gallery has earned a reputation
as an international cultural hub. Since
1980, the Gomboc Gallery Sculpture
Park has been a continuous work in progress,
and features a number of large works by national
and international artists.
Numerous sculptures have been created by Ron
Gomboc, who has for the past 10 years poured his
energy in to having frequent overseas exhibitions,
and attending artist-in-residence workshops and
symposiums in China, Japan and France.
Most recently, Ron represented Australia at
the Melanesian Arts Festival in Noumea, where
his work was exhibited in and acquired for the
Province Sud collection.
Sculpture by the Sea Exhibition, Bondi 2010
was Ron’s tenth participation in this event, and he
is the first West Australian sculptor to be inducted
into the Decade Club for those artists whose work
was selected to feature in 10 exhibitions at Bondi.
The 2011 Cottesloe Sculpture by the Sea
Exhibition will be the seventh that Ron’s work
has been selected for.
Ron’s sculptures have received international
recognition, some of it extending from his three
exhibitions in Paris (another show planned
midyear 2011 in the south of France).
This exposure has led to his work being selected
by overseas developers, including projects for the
Sultanate of Oman.
Currently, Ron is working on a commission
of six sculptures for a major development at the
Galaxy Complex in Macau.
One of the largest commissions that Ron
has designed and been involved in was
Northern Spirits, commissioned by Fortescue
Metals Group, Port Hedland. This particular
project created a great deal of interest, and Ron
has been commissioned to make six more
sculptures for FMG.
This will also be the 28th year that the
Gomboc Gallery Sculpture Survey Exhibition
will be presented, an annual event involving
students from Edith Cowan and Curtin
Universities, and Polytechnic Midland.
