2012 Canadian Sculpture Competition at Kingsbrae Garden


ST. ANDREWS, NB, Nov. 14, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - We are pleased to announce that the deadline for entries for one of Canada's largest outdoor sculpture competitions has been extended.    The new deadline for entries is Friday December 2, 2011 with finalists being selected no later than Friday December 16, 2011.  It is Kingsbrae Garden's intention for the extension to allow for further outreach across Canada.

"We're very excited as the sculpture garden grows, to offer Canadian sculptors a bigger and better opportunity to exhibit their work within the boundaries of Kingsbrae Garden," says Andreas Haun, General Manager.  "Marrying sculpture and horticulture is a natural combination."

In 2011, the first prize of $10,000 was awarded to Domenico DiGuglielmo for his work Circle of Love.  Second prize, which has been increased for 2012 to $7,500, was awarded to Jeff Watson of Longueuil, Quebec for his piece entitled Papillon.  The first-prize winning work from the 2012 Competition will find a permanent home on display within the Kingsbrae Sculpture Garden.  The second-prize winning work will also be on display at Kingsbrae Garden.

This will be the fourth consecutive year for the Canadian Sculpture Competition held at Kingsbrae Garden, a breathtaking 27-acre public garden featuring more than 50,000 perennials, a rare Woolemi Pine, a sculpture garden, exotic animals, children's activities, an art gallery and so much more!  Kingsbrae Garden is open mid-May to mid-October and is handicap accessible.
