The work was demanding but the artists were all more than up to the task on Wednesday morning outside the Pioneer Arena on Columbia Avenue.
The group of five sculptors (pictured below) represented “Sand-sations” — a component of this year’s Castlegar SculptureWalk effort.
“It’s one event of several that SculptureWalk holds throughout the year,” described Pat Field, a 30-year sculptor himself, as well as the volunteer co-ordinator for the program.
“People can come down to the arena and check out what’s going on. They can come down and talk to the artists and interact as well,” added Field.
The art is being created each day until Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The artists have free rein to do as they’re inspired, but there is a suggested theme to follow: “Nature and Man.”
Four completed sculptures will result, expected to last for about three months.
