The final Adelaide Hills International Sculpture Symposium gets underway on Tuesday April 5th at The Cedars, Heysen Road, Hahndorf and continues till the 25th (closed Mondays).  Gold Coin Entry from 10am – 4pm.  Participating artists will be Yoshin Ogata from Japan (for the second time) whose work will be placed in Bridgewater, Marijan Bekic Australia – Nairne, Renata Verbrugge NZ – Mt Barker, Francesco Panceri Italy – Woodside, Gheorghi Filin Bulgaria – Milang, Anna Korver NZ – Stirling, Liu Yang China – Mt Barker, Simon Thomas England – Strathalbyn, Soedong Choe Korea – The Cedars and Karin van Ommeren Netherlands – near Mt Barker summit.

Silvio will again be Artist Director of this event and 10 sculptures will be added to the Adelaide Hills Sculpture Trail by the end of the year, making a total of 26 works.  He greatly appreciates the hard work of the AHISS Board which has supported him for the past 8 years as they turn his vision into reality and he acknowledges the extremely generous support of local communities and councils who also embraced the concept of “sculpture in the hills”.  Do plan a few days exploring the Sculpture Trail in the Hills and the Fleurieu; maps available at The Cedars and the tourist office in the Hahndorf Academy.
