Ken Scarlett

Kenneth William Scarlett OAM (born 27 November 1927) is an Australian writer specialising in Australian sculpture. His 1980 publication ''Australian Sculptors'' (1980) was the first to present a complete survey of sculpture in Australia. Subsequent publications include ''Sculpture in Public Gardens'' (1983), ''Limited Recall: A Fictional Autobiography'' (2005), ''Elgee Park: Sculpture in the Landscape'' (2010) and monographs on the sculptors John Davis (1989) and Andrew Rogers (2010). He was a contributing editor to Sculpture (magazine) USA for many years and his articles appear regularly in art journals in Australia and overseas.

For many years he lectured in sculpture at tertiary institutions before becoming the director of Gryphon Gallery in Melbourne. More recently he has not only curated a number of exhibitions of sculpture in major galleries, including McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park and Heide Museum of Modern Art, but also unorthodox venues such as hospitals, shopping complexes, parks and gardens. The ''Sculpture Walk'' in Melbourne's Royal Botanic Gardens (1996), was a major exhibition.

He is regularly invited to lecture on various aspects of Australian sculpture, which he has done at the National Gallery of Victoria, the Art Gallery of New South Wales and Sotheby's and Christie's auction houses. In 1996 he was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia for services to sculpture. Provided by Wikipedia
