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.
