Hello all,  We had a lively meeting to debate and choose our theme  for this year, and the winner was TENSION.  We like that it has many meanings, and relates to all kinds of physical and creative relationships as well as psychological tension.  We look forward to seeing how artists work…

And the theme for 2016 will be... BLUE



We had a great meeting with a good group, and a number of ideas emailed in as well -- 36 total.  We used our patented process,  and the winning theme was BLUE.   I think it will be very interesting: yes, it's a color, but also has references to music, to love, to sadness, and…

Saturday Sept 12 is Installation Day!

Saturday artists will be at the park all day installing their sculptures.

It's actually a fun day to come by the park, as you get to see the work-in-progress for many artists who are doing site specific works (like yours truly)..

And you might get asked to hold a ladder, or hand up a rope, or who knows what.  We'll photograph the sculptures at the end of the day, and the show will officially open on Sunday the 13th.  

The reception and tour will be the following Saturday…

And the theme for the 2015 show is: LINK !

We have chosen the theme for this years show:  LINK !  We had a lively discussion, and followed our hallowed top-secret process.  LINK emerged victorious after multiple rounds of voting and good arguments.  We like that it's active, that it has many meanings, and that we're interested to see what artists will do with it!

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......

INSIDE-OUT

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....
