Saint John New Brunswick hosts Sculpture Saint John

The history of granite goes back hundreds of years in New Brunswick, particularly in the Saint John area. Artists participating in Sculpture Saint John (August 2nd – September 15, 2012) will be using pieces of New Brunswick’s Blue Mountain, Stone Island Blue and St. George Red and pink granite to create their intricate designs.

The granite comes from quarries in nearby Hampstead and St. George making this a sculpture artist’s heaven.

Sculpture Saint John, along with the New Brunswick International Sculpture Symposium is bringing together six artists from around the world who will set their art into beautiful 100-year old giant slabs of granite, some weighing up to ten tons. These public art works will remain in Saint John and surrounding communities and at the University of New Brunswick-Saint John.

This year’s artists are Hiroyuki Asano from Japan, James Boyd of New Brunswick, Jhon Gogaberishvili from the country of Georgia, Jo Kley from Germany and Agenssa Petrova and Radoslav Sultov from Bulgaria.

Big art like this deserves a big viewing space and it has it on Saint John’s stunning waterfront, six acres on the decommissioned Coast Guard property in the middle of the cruise ship port and just a few blocks from downtown.

Sculpture Saint John is a perfect opportunity to get up close and personal with these artists, their art and beautiful Saint John, one of New Brunswick’s prettiest cities.
