I spent a few hours on Saturday hanging out with the sculptors from the 2015 Nashua International Sculpture Symposium. It was a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon; the sun was out and a nice cool breeze made the working conditions for all three sculptors comfortable.
The sculptures are all coming to life. I got a chance to chat with the sculptors: Ennica Mukomberanwa from Zimbabwe, Ana Duncan from Ireland, and Petre Petrov from Bulgaria. I’ll be busy photographing the closing event, so it was nice to talk to them one-on-one about their creations. The closing ceremony is scheduled for May 30th at 1:00pm behind Nashua City Hall. Two trolley buses will be available where attendees will get a chance to see the locations and the unveiling of all three sculptures. The artists will also speak about the inspiration for this year’s theme “Reflections on the River.”
It was also nice to see Katherine Rudolph of Katherine Rudolph Jewelry and Master Sculptor, John M. Weidman, Artistic Director of Andres Institute of Art located in Brookline, NH. Below are photos of Katherine watching and learning from sculptor, Petre Petrov. And as always, John provides his guidance and knowledge every year to the sculptors who participate in this yearly event. There is much to learn from a master of the craft.
Hope to see you all at the closing event!
