The Sculpture Garden at Kingsbrae
Kingsbrae Garden is home to a growing collection of sculptures, principally in the Sculpture Garden, home to the winners of the Kingsbrae Garden Canadian Scupture Competition. For a look at the Sculpture Garden, watch the video below. The marriage of art and gardens is a natural one. Around the 27-acre Kingsbrae site are other works: metal and glass creations by Don Pell, several works on loan from the Beaverbrook collection, and a variety of animal figures. Despite these, a Dutch windmill and collections of over 50,000 plants, there is always room for more.
Organizers of Canada’s largest outdoor sculpture competition are happy to announce that 16 finalists have been selected from all across Canada to compete in the 2013 Canadian Sculpture Competition at Kingsbrae Garden.
“The calibre of the entries continues to increase each year and this year is no exception,” says Andreas Haun, General Manager. “This is to date the most far-reaching range of pieces we have ever received representing artists from across the country.”
The finalists will be working to complete their sculptures over the next few months. The pieces will then be shipped or personally delivered to Kingsbrae Garden in time for the annual awards ceremony being held on Thursday June 13, 2013.

Second prize of $7,500 was awarded to Mark Breckenridge of Bluevale, Ontario for Horse. Honourable mentions went to W.W.
