The NE Sculpture Workshop is a cooperative shared-studio project focused on facilitating the creation and promotion of ambitious contemporary sculpture. The facility is specifically designed to accommodate sculptors in the early stages of their careers who work with modern industrial materials and processes.
In the words of Canadian art critic Terry Fenton, the NE Sculpture Workshop has given its member sculptors “the double advantage of being removed from the student environment while retaining continued access to one another for stimulation and criticism. This does not amount to their charting a common course. If anything, the shared studio has confirmed them in separate directions: the hothouse atmosphere appears to have stimulated both invention and individuality” (Terry Fenton, Edmonton Sculpture: The Next Generation, May 2002).
