August 23, Sculpture in Saint Andrews

by the Sea

 Sculpture St. Andrews, Kingsbrae Garden and Sunbury Shores are offering visitors from Saint John a sculpture extravaganza on August 23. 

Come in the morning and visit the Sculpture Show at Sunbury Shores Arts and Nature Centre.  The show includes works in stone by over twenty New Brunswick and international sculptors.  This is your chance to see and purchase smaller works by N.B. and Sculpture Saint John artists and to review the recently-completed renovations to the Centre.

Stop for lunch at one of our many fine eateries. You could spend an hour or two exploring the town shops and local galleries and then take a walk out onto the Town wharf.

Later in the afternoon it will be time to visit Kingsbrae Garden in anticipation of the Eat for Art event (more below).  Tickets are $70 or $120 for a couple. Profits from the evening will support the installation of Karin Van Ommeron’s sculpture .

Take in the wonderful botanical garden (admission free with the purchase of Eat for Art tickets).  Then walk around the sculpture garden and view the sculptures of the 2014 sculpture competition.  You can then visit Allison Green and watch her work on a granite sculpture.  There will also be a sculpting “workshop” for children.  Later, you will participate in a ceremony which will announce the winner of the 2014 Kingsbrae Garden sculpture competition.

Time to go indoors and see the food sculpture exhibition which will feature 20 entries.  You can vote for your favorite food sculpture and later take it home if you are the successful bidder.  You can also buy raffle tickets for two pieces of art – a beautiful painting by local artist Brian Adams and a stone platter by Ken Waiwood.

The highlight of the evening will be a gourmet dinner prepared by the kitchen of Chef Alex Haun. Here is the menu:

 Cocktail Hour

International Sculpture Symposium

Sculpture Saint John

Sculpture Saint John 2012 was the first New Brunswick International Sculpture Symposium  and by all accounts was a huge success.

Over 35,000 visitors watched as six international artists carved 120 tons of New Brunswick granite. People became enthralled by the process of creating public art. Everyone enjoyed interacting with the artists and interns helping to make this the largest arts event in New Brunswick.

Our second symposium will be held August- September 2014. We are excited about our new location on Water Street and anticipate over 50,000 people will attend this year. We have increased the number of artists to eight and significantly expanded the education program  during the event.

Recently we launched a map of the International Sculpture trail we are creating between Maine and New Brunswick and have been welcoming many new and  returning sponsors. So, keep watching as we make announcements, get involved by signing up to be a volunteer, contact us about making a donation or get involved in the committees working in the partner communities.

When we encourage public art, we also encourage creativity and thoughtfulness and build a richer future for all of our citizens.

Special Update!

Host a lunch for the sculptors and interns on-site

Do you enjoy cooking healthy, nutritious and filling meals in large quantities? Would you like to meet the sculptors and interns on-site? We are looking for volunteers to host a lunch for twenty-four hungry sculptors, interns and site personnel for one lunch. You supply all the food and deliver a cooked meal to the Sculpture Symposium site. We provide the utensils and sculptors and interns with big appetites. The Sculpture Symposium takes place between August 7th and September 20th and we are looking for volunteers to provide meals seven days a week during this time frame. If you are interested in hosting a lunch, please contact Liane and Suzanne and let us know what dates would work best for you. We look forward to hearing from you.
