Two Richmond sculptors will have their work shown in the Sculptors’ Society of B.C.’s summer exhibition at Van Dusen Gardens.

Alex Schick and Cliff Vincenzi are among the sculptors who will showcase their creations during the Vancouver event July 31 to Aug. 4.

Schick’s work is inspired by the sea lions found on the Steveston jetty, while Vincenzi is working on a large double portrait in bronze of his ancestors—a First Nations princess who married one of the first Italian pioneers in B.C. The sculptors, who work primarily in bronze, have been friends and collaborators for over 40 years.

The sculptures can be seen from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Van Dusen Gardens is located at 5152 Oak St. in Vancouver. The show also includes daily demonstrations. Van Dusen admission fees apply.
