Show Statement

In the summer of 2014, Saint John Arts Centre had the wonderful opportunity to partner with Sculpture Saint John to offer workshops to the public during the International Sculpture Symposium.


With the assistance of generous funding by the Sheila Hugh Mackay Foundation and Canaport LNG, SJAC presented various hands-on workshops, including the extremely popular ‘Intro to Soapstone Carving’ classes with Ingrid Van Den Hurk and Gerrie Creemers of Soapstone Nova Scotia. Some of the incredible results of these classes are showcased in this exhibit, created by members of the community, many of whom were indeed sculpting for the ‘first time’.


Featured artists are: Diana Alexander, Dennis Almost, Sue Davis, Izabell Fagan, Larry Fagan, Patricia Farren, June Foley, Signe Gurholt, Jeanine Hartman, Anne Hickey, Robert Johnston, Andrew Kierstead, Jacob Mills, Anita Punamiya, Mike Richard, Barbara Roberts.
