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.

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!
