Ten international artists working with metal, stone, or composite material may be chosen
What: 9th International Sculpture Symposium of Saint-Georges
Where: Ville de Saint-Georges, Québec, not far away from the Canadian border with Vermont and Maine in the US
When: May 21 – June 11, 2023
Who may apply: 10 Canadian or international artists working with metal (stainless steel, corten steel, or aluminum), stone (granite, marble, or limestone) or composite material (fiberglass)

Remuneration: a royalty of 5000 CDA (approx. 3750 US-$) will be paid to the participants after the event. Travel, accommodation, and food is paid by the organizer, material for the artwork, too. Beauce Art provides most of the tools (with rare exceptions if it is ultra-specialized equipment). On the other hand, an artist who would like to bring his own tool is responsible for bringing the required adapters.
Symposium: Artists are expected to finish their work during the symposium and to participate in social events like talks with the citizens and meetings with sponsors or the press. The right of ownership of the completed artwork is transferred to the city.
Application deadline: December 15, 2022
Application fee: none
Background: The symposium is organized by Beauce Art, a non-profit organization whose mandate is to create a permanent trail of art in Saint-Georges. The location of the trail is on the banks along the Chaudière River in the city.
