And the theme for the 2013 show is... INTERTWINE

We had a lively meeting to debate and decide the theme for the 2013 show.  Everybody brought 3 ideas, (some sent em in from afar..) and we followed our "hallowed" process of rounds of voting to narrow the list down, until we ended up with two finalists: Intertwine and Between.  Intertwined won the final vote (but it was close), but with no fisticuffs.  Thanks to everyone who came and participated!

I think it will be a great theme - it's dynamic, organic, evocative and specific…

And the theme for the 2012 Show is......


We had a great meeting with a lot of good ideas contributed by the artists who came, and others sent in by those of you who couldn't make it.  After following our "hallowed" voting process, Inside-out won out.  This should be a really interesting theme - lots of potential meanings.

Reception & Tour this Saturday 17th! 2-5! Please Come!

We'll start with refreshments, then we'll take a tour of all the sculpures, with artists saying a few words about each.  It's a lot of fun -- sort of like a pub crawl, but with art instead of pubs....  It looks to be a beautiful day....

The Show is UP and looking Great!

This past Saturday, 34 artists worked busily under a beautiful blue sky, populating the park with 34 sculptures, many working with this year's theme of TRACE. It's a great day, when we finally get to see what everybody has been working on, and this year we definitely have a lot of interesting, strong work.

I'll start uploading photos today...

and come to the Tour / Reception on this Saturday, the 18th, 2 to 5!

1. a surviving mark, sign, or evidence of the former existence, influence, or action of some agent or event; vestige: traces of an advanced civilization among the ruins. 2. a barely discernible indication or evidence of some quantity, quality, characteristic, expression, etc.: a trace of anger in…

And the Theme for the 2010 show is ... TRACE !

Tuesday night was a fun and dramatic meeting of Maudslay sculptors to set the theme for this years show.

A long list was compiled from ideas contributed by everyone, and we went through several rounds of voting to finally get to a small group of finalists. After much good natured lobbying, discussion, and joking, in the end, we needed a tiebreaker to choose TRACE as this year's theme, narrowly winning… Continue
