SJAC has been proud to partner with our friends and colleagues at Sculpture Saint John to bring workshops, demo days, and other educational programming to this highly-anticipated event. Understandably, Sculpture SJ has made the decision to postpone the symposium until summer of 2021.
SJAC will be issuing refunds (cheques via Canada Post) to all who have already signed up for soapstone carving or basket making workshops – we hope you’ll be able to sign up again for the 2021 classes!
Please see Sculpture SJ’s statement below:
Like many other festivals and events that highlight the summer calendar, Sculpture Saint John is following the advice of our health officials and has made the difficult decision to postpone until next summer. An exact date for the 2021 event will be decided upon in the coming months. We will remain at our new location on Long Wharf.
Since our inception, we have been fortunate to receive tremendous support from our incredible sponsors and partners as well as our many volunteers. Over the years, in excess of 150 individuals and companies have helped Sculpture Saint John contribute more than $3 million to the local economy. And thanks to all of you for coming to the waterfront year after year, welcoming our artists to our beautiful city and participating in our workshops.
We look forward to re-invigorating our planning in the coming months to prepare our final and legacy event for the summer for 2021. And when it is safe to do so, please go visit the 30 sculptures that have already been installed around the province. Re-discover these beautiful communities and enjoy the world-class art that has been gifted to our province.
