Emerging Sculptors Program


The Emerging Sculptors Program 2017 mentored artists who  worked as assistants with the sculptors at the Symposium to enhance their stone sculpting skills. This program was supported by Country Arts SA and the Australian Government Regional Arts Fund.

Sculptors @ Crystal Lake symposium is in partnership with the South Australian Stone Sculptors Association. It is funded by commissions of sculpture by private / corporate and community sponsors, by the sale of art work at the Crystal Lake Gallery, donations from the public, grants, fundraising activities, and by the generosity of participating sculptors.
