ForumArts National Sculpture Symposium 2014

In June 2014 ForumArts organised the first National Sculpture Symposium along with partners Marshall Murray and London Sculpture Workshop at Riverhill Himalayan Gardens in Kent. A selection panel of Julian Wild (ForumArts), Oliver Hawkins (Marshall Murray) and Alma Zevi (curator and writer) chose 6 artists to work intensively over ten days to create ambitious and large-scale outdoor sculptures.

During ten very tough days, the selected artists have managed to achieve their goals. Patrick Hurst, Jane Phillips, Steve Hurtado, Sol Bailey Barker, Katie Hayward  and Ed Jones have delighted us with their skills, perseverance, enthusiasm and conviction to finish their sculptures in such a short time with the highest professionalism.

The sculptures produced remained in exhibition for the rest of the summer 2014 and  2015.

Please follow the link to see the publication we produced after it.
