Check out what unusual pumpkin carvings Ephemeral Artist, James Cook creates – live -during opening night at Sculpture EXPO. Friday, October 25th at the Horticulture Building at Lansdowne Park. Doors open at 5:00pm. He’ll also give you tips and tricks to make your pumpkin carvings last longer. If you ask, he may even recite one of his poems for you.
There are many forms of ephemeral art, from sculpture to performance, but the term is usually used to describe a work of art that only occurs once, like a happening, and cannot be embodied in any lasting object to be shown in a museum or gallery.
James Cook has created masterpieces in ice, sand and snow and this winter he heads back to Yellow Knife in the NorthWest Territories to compete in the SnowKings Snow Sculpture Competition. His team includes fellow NCNS artist Uwe Foehring.
James Cook is not just an ephemeral sculptor, he also paints and he sculpts in stone. Make sure to check out one of his new stone pieces at Sculpture EXPO.
October 25-27th at the Horticulture Building at Lansdowne Park.
See you there!
