We are excited to announce a presentation by Dominion Sculptor of Canada,Phil White at Sculpture EXPO, Sunday, October 27th at 11:00am.
Phil R. White is a Canadian artist and sculptor. He is the Dominion Sculptor of Canada, a position whose duties include the creation of original works of art in sculpture. It is likely the only such government-salaried permanent position in the world (no such position exists in the United Kingdom, nor the United States.). Primarily, his works are figurative art. He is an architectural sculptor and carver and creates works in stone, wood, and bronze.
You won’t want to miss this presentation where Phil White will be discussing the history of the Parliamentary Sculpture Program. The origins of the program and the concept the architect of the Centre Block, John Pearson, had in 1917 to depict the history and culture of Canada in walls and columns throughout the building. Through the efforts of several generations of sculptors that idea has developed, and Phil White will bring us up to date on where we are today.
