Mayworks Festival features sculpture garden

Deep Bay artist takes part in annual festival of labour

They’ve been called evocative, interesting and sometimes beautiful. Now, the annual Mayworks Festival is organizing a tour to see Bill Friesen’s sculpture garden in Deep Bay so people can add superlatives of their own.

The open house at the grove of old growth trees  on the 5160 Gainsberg Road property will also include works by guest artists Ed Varney, Marci Katz, Corre Alice, Jeff Hartbower and Pat Acton, who will be on site to demonstrate their artistic skills.

Well known blues artist Gerry Barnum will be playing throughout the afternoon and food and refreshment will be available, along with door prizes.

This free event runs from 1 to 5 p.m.
