About the Totem Arts Festival

The Totem Arts Festival (formerly the Newport Sculpture Trail) is an annual art event, running over 2 weeks, that promotes sculpture, northern beaches artists, local businesses and the community of Newport village. This year’s trail will include performance, sound and installation artworks as well as sculpture.

We are excited to celebrate the 7th year of Festival. Co-founded by Patsy Clayton-Fry and Chris Riou, last year we explored contemporary sculpture through our 2018 theme ‘Spirit’.

We look forward to showcasing the talent and diversity of so many Northern Beaches artists this year for the community to enjoy and celebrate! Keep a lookout also for art events and workshops that will be organised to coincide with the exhibition and will be promoted on our Facebook page and this website.

Hope to see you all down in the village!
