Previous Exhibitions

The Heysen Sculpture Biennial is an outdoor sculpture exhibition organised by an all-volunteer committee.

The Biennial began in 2000 with a dozen works situated in the grounds of The Cedars.  From 1912, The Cedars was home to painter, draughtsman and seminal interpreter of the Australian light and landscape, Sir Hans Heysen. Following Heysen's death in 1968, the property was owned by the Heysen Estate until October 2016 when it was formally transferred to the Hans Heysen Foundation. 


The HSB was an initiative of Adelaide Hills artist Helen Lyons. Lyons was the founder of Trees Please, the environmental group responsible for the continuing rehabilitation of the tracts of bushland within The Cedars.


The Heysen Sculpture Biennial was staged at The Cedars in 2000, 2002, 2004, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2019, and at Carrick Hill in 2022.
