Kerry in Sculpture in the Garden.

Sculptures in the Garden at Mudgee is one of the largest outdoor sculpture events in rural N.S.W. and was held on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th October. Over 50 artists were involved as was Kerry with his amusing piece, ‘Mrs. Wright and her cat’.

It seems Mrs. Wright was a real person who was perceived by all as a rather dour woman until she showed you her cat.  She was amazingly proud of her cat and would elongate it to show its beauty. The cat, as can be seen in Kerry’s bronze portrait of the pair, thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Mrs. Wright’s feelings are open to your interpretation.  Everyone who passed by the piece was taken by it and its history and was amused by the insider information given when Kerry was interviewed. 

Kay and Gerald Norton-Knight, their family and the many supporters who gave of their time and skills are to be applauded for their incredible organization and the artists for displaying their considerable talent.

The Dancing Crows

On a hill high above Ceramic Break Sculpture Park, two crows are dancing and singing
 under a crescent moon.
What fun!
And what an adventure to move such large pieces.
To Be Continued.

The opening with class..

The sun shone, the crowds came and everyone had a cultured time at Ceramic Break’s first opening of 2016.

Two artists, Margie Makim and Marilynne Barnes are exhibiting through May 2016.
Margie Makim’s exhibition included paintings, installations and performances of song, music and readings from the text.  The enthusiastic auction conducted by professional auctioneer Mark Smith  added another layer of fun and excitement to the proceedings.

The variety of activities was a first for Ceramic Break and it was a great show with fabulous performances from musicians, singers and readers.

Marilynne Barnes nudes are a delight and her artist talk gave a special insight into her work. When you visit be sure to look for the one male nude in her show, 'Bodylines'.

Into the dark interior.

The Impala is hollow and over 2 metres tall. Kerry's exquisite doors open the way to the interior where all the organs and a baby Impala will be nestled.

At Ceramic Break Sculpture Park
Where Kerry lives and sculpts his art
He’s working on an inside story
Of organs, large n small n ornery

So come with me and listen as
An interview will come to pass
To expose all the artist’s thoughts
Of how the creative process works..

Int            Kerry Cannon, how do your creative processes work?

Kerry       I'm inspired by everyday things that I find funny and I exaggerate them.

Int            How does that fit in with the Impala's organs?

Kerry       I used to devour anatomy books and once took an anatomy lab workshop
                 and I like to use that knowledge.
                 I thought it would be fun to put in the organs with an African flair.

Int            Tell me about the African flair.

Kerry       I have taken little motifs from different places on the continent that I like
                  and I incorporated them into my design.

Int            Thank you Kerry for sharing your thoughts with us today.
