Sculptors work for symposium
ISTANBULArtists have been continuing to work on their sculptures for the Manavgat International Stone-Sculpture Symposium, which is being organized in the southern province of Antalya’s Manavgat district with the theme of “water and stone.” The symposium, which started on Sept. 29, will be closed on Oct. 16 with the opening of the sculptors’ exhibition.
The symposium is hosting seven Turkish sculptors from Akdeniz University, Ordu University, Hacettepe University and Pamukkale University and five foreign sculptors from Italy, Japan and the U.S.
Visiting the symposium, Akdeniz University Fine Arts Faculty Dean Professor Sadettin Sarı said the artists had been working on the exhibition for more than 10 days. “Each of the sculptures is between 2.5 and 7 tons in weight. They are created from marble. These works will fill a gap in the artistic face of Manavgat,” he added.
The symposium and exhibition is being organized in collaboration with Akdeniz University and the Manavgat Municipality.
