Save the date: Come along to the Riverhaven Artland Summer Sculpture Weekend from 29-31 January 2022 SPONSORED
Enjoy art, guided tours, plants for sale, light refreshments and more at the third-annual Riverhaven Summer Sculpture Weekend, with proceeds going to Franklin Hospice.
Wander through Clevedon’s Riverhaven Artland sculpture park over Auckland Anniversary weekend (29 to 31 Jan 2022) and help raise funds for Franklin Hospice. Riverhaven Summer Sculpture Weekend is part of the Clevedon Art Trail — a wonderful way to wrap up the holidays.
Guy and Katie Blundell, founders of Riverhaven Artland sculpture park, invite everyone to pop in for the three-day fundraiser. “We want to build on last year’s success, so we’ll continue with the super popular guided tours as well as the small-work show and the auction on the opening night,” says Katie.
Last year’s small-work show and auction contributed to the $27,000 raised for Franklin Hospice. Following the auction on Friday, Guy and Katie will lead a sunset tour of Riverhaven ($25 adult/$15 child) and introduce the newest addition to the collection. “We’re really excited to be installing Jeff Thomson’s ‘Woven House’, it shows more of his magic with corrugated iron,” Katie adds.

Franklin Hospice says they are overwhelmed by the Blundell family’s generosity to help raise funds for Franklin Hospice. “It’s a fine example of people-powered fundraising. This is no small undertaking for a property of this size and their planning started months ago. If the last two years are anything to go by, the annual Riverhaven Artland event will be a major contributor to the financial future of Franklin Hospice.”
