Le Domaine Forget Sculpture Park Opens

In June, the Harmonic Sculpture Garden at Le Domaine Forget opened to great fanfare and ceremony in St. Irenee, Quebec. The event was well attended by artists, dignitaries, and local art enthusiasts. Speeches by Quebec’s Cultural Minister and other politicians were well received and much appreciated by the artists that travelled to the exhibition.  Jim Fuhr, a respected art historian and linguist delivered a lecture (en Francais) about each artist and their works that were on display.  Later, Mr. Fuhr also gave a tour of the sculpture park to the public.  Artist that were on hand also talked about their sculptures and answered questions from the attendees. Linda Howard, Bryan Rasmussen, John Henry, Terry Karpowicz, Peter Lundberg and myself all were able to explain our process and interact with the crowd during the evening. In all, it was a first-class event that really showcased the hospitality and generosity of our Canadian neighbors in the Charlevoix.
