World class sculptures on exhibit south of Sundre

Beginning in 2008 and continuing in 2009 and 2010, local sculptor Morton Burke attracted world class sculptors to his acreage south of Sundre, near the Hamlet of Bergen, where they created marvels in stone that are currently on exhibit on the acreage. Each artist was given a stipend and stayed at the acreage for a month while creating the sculptures out of rocks brought in from British Columbia by Burke. In 2011 the work was carried out on the campus of Red Deer College. The results are impressive, to say the least. Go to Alberta West Photos here to see snapshots of the artists' work.

First, the last name did not start with the letter M as in Moon. I want to make sure that is crystal clear to these people, and that is being polite. South Beach
