Lake House Arts Wood Sculpture Live 2013

Calling all sculptors!! Sculpture large and small will be the focus at Lake House Arts Centre in April 2013.
For ten intense days from the 17th to the 28th of April the Centre will be abuzz with the hum of chainsaws, power tools and the rhythmic beat of hand carving, while up to 30 artists from around New Zealand are pushed hard to complete their sculptures in time for the official opening on Sunday 28th April. Then the gardens will once again return to tranquillity to become the canvas for over 30 completed large outdoor sculptures in wood from the 28th April to the end of May giving the public ample opportunity to visit this significant outdoor exhibition. If this event is something you would love to take part in, then contact event manager Kim Boyd at the Arts Centre. The event is open to any artists including novice sculptors. Wood Sculpture Live has proved to be a worthy platform for artists to share ideas, support one another and to showcase their artwork.
Major sponsors are Devonport Takapuna Local Board, Creative Communities, the Becroft Foundation and Lake House Arts Centre.
