Stone sculptures attracting attention

ahead of auction

It seems everyone has a different favourite when it comes to the stone sculptures on display on New Plymouth’s Coastal Walkway.

Whether it is Pirongia artist Bill Devoy’s Tui on the Kowhai, Whangarei artist Trisha Fisk’s Moe – Gentle Sleep or the work of Gisborne sculptor Karaitana Akroyd’s with his piece Rangitukia - there have been no shortage of visitors to the exhibition.

Hundreds of people have been taking the opportunity to stroll through and admire the work from the biennial Te Kupenga Stone Sculpture Symposium, which they are allowed to touch and feel.

The 25 artists who took part in the symposium, which attracted artists from as far away as Japan and Portugal, have each displayed their work on the walkway ahead of the auction, which starts at 1pm on Saturday.
