Twenty New Zealand sculptors have been named to take part in this summer’s Stoneleigh Sculpture in the Gardens exhibition at the Auckland Botanic Gardens in Manurewa.

The curatorial panel of Alexa Johnston, Leo Jew and Lisa Reihana made their selection from a list of 72 proposals including many artists that took part in the 2007-08 exhibition.

“Once again there was a great deal of interest from artists wanting to take part and exhibit their work in Auckland’s wonderful Botanic Gardens,” says Ms Johnston.
