Gibbs Farm Fundraiser Day
Friday 12th April 2019
Join us for an extraordinary day at Gibbs Farm to raise funds for Alzheimers Northland. The celebrated Gibbs Farm is a breath taking open-air sculpture park located besides the largest harbour in the Southern Hemisphere – the “mighty Kaipara”.
The park has 21 commissioned large-scale outdoor sculptures, the greatest collection of its type in the country with works by some of the world’s most renowned artists. You will roam among the sculptures and come face-to-face with some truly exotic animals.
Make the most of this great opportunity by joining us for the day, bring a picnic and soak up the magic of these incredible artworks. The scale of the artworks means that they become a part of the harbour landscape and change it into the unreal.
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 harbour is so vast it occupies the whole western horizon; and it is very shallow, so when the tide goes out, the shallows are exposed for several kilometres and the light shimmies and bounces off it across the land. After nearly twenty years Gibbs Farm includes major works by Graham Bennett, Chris Booth, Daniel Buren, Bill Culbert, Neil Dawson, Marijke de Goey, Andy Goldsworthy, Ralph Hotere, Anish Kapoor, Sol LeWitt, Len Lye, Russell Moses, Peter Nicholls, Eric Orr, Tony Oursler, George Rickey, Peter Roche, Richard Serra, Kenneth Snelson, Richard Thompson, Leon van den Eijkel and Zhan Wang.
Please note Gibbs Farm is a private property open by appointment only on scheduled monthly visitor days bookable through their website. Gibbs Farm have generously opened their farm in support of Alzheimers Northland who change the life’s of people affected by dementia – helping families face their challenges to live without fear by providing holistic support where it is most needed.
