Sculpturewalk’s Sandsations event kicks off this weekend, from July 4 – 7, in front of Castlegar’s Pioneer Arena. Artists Peter Vogelaar, John McKinnon, David Ducharme and Denis Kleine will be creating four large-scale sand sculptures, following the theme of Fairy Tales.
“This continues to be an incredibly popular event for Sculpturewalk and we’re happy to see it grow,” said Sculpturewalk executive director Joy Barrett. “We are very lucky to have the world-class talent of Peter, John, David and Denis right on our doorstep, and we think that this year’s theme will prove to be a popular one for children of all ages!”
The first day, Thursday July 4, will be installation of the sand and the forms, then the carving will start and continue until completion on Sunday.
The sculptures themselves will stay in place until September, as weather permits.
