In late July of 2012, Peter and David were invited to create sand sculptures based on gold mining for the first annual Sand Sensations even in Taylor BC. Our friends Ilya Filimontsev and Ray Villafane also took part in the exhibition. Jesse Forrester was in charge of logistics and played a key element is making this years event a success.
Peter used his friend from Winlaw, Tipi Doug, as his model for the quintessential gold panner. We were very pleased with the popular reception of the sand event, and also how well it linked with the Gold Panning championships held in the same park. The sponsors of the event, the FSJ Arts Council hope that this event will become an annual highlight of the Peace Country summer.
