  1. There are also the exhibiting artists at La Rondine Gallery, Tony Scott, Dick & Wayne Warren from China Art Projects in Hong Kong and Beijing. The Sculpture Symposium, Ryoichi Suzuki, Sarah Danays, Douglas Robinson, Petra Boshart, Michael Cartwright – All part of the festival.

  2. It was fascinating to see the hive of activity when I was in Ponte in both May & June. It’s wonderful to the results of all that hard work. A really good reason for a party! I’m sure this is the start of something big.
