Gibbs Farm is an unusual setting for a sculpture collection. The North Auckland property is dominated by the Kaipara Harbour, the largest harbour in the Southern hemisphere.
The farm is the selected place to hold a contemporary sculpture exhibition. An unexpected place to watch contemporary art made by different artists. Gibbs Farm, Sculpture Park is hidden alongside the Kiapara harbour just fifty kilometers north of Auckland and the owner, successful businessman and entrepreneur Alan Gibbs, is one of New Zealand’s leading art collectors. Maybe his passion for art lead to this major art exhibition in his farm.
Walking the land visitors can appreciate how each artist has come to terms in their own way with the gravitational pull that is exerted on everything as the mountains roll into hills and slide into gullies and slope down towards the wide flat expanse of the Kaipara harbour.
Gibbs Farm includes major works from artists worldwide that can are showcased for the farm visitors.
This private property is closed to the public but is opened on a weekday for visitors by appointment only. The waiting list is booked months in advance. With this highly anticipated visit not only you will have a chance to encounter the wildlife up close, but also get to see and touch the giant sculptures that lay hidden beyond the hills.
The scale of some of these art forms needs to be seen to be believed as they tower above the horizon and cut through the landscape. Visitors describe the visit as overwhelmingly breathtaking.
