"Our members have created sculptures that reflect artistically the history of the Northshore reach of the River whether it be of its past or present use. This requirement created a challenge which our artists have embraced. We have created with a strong sense of place in mind.

EDQ has given us access to some of the smaller pieces of wharf timber that could also be created into art works. This ties into the history of the place as the old wharf timbers come from this site.

We have 26 outdoor sculptures and 45 indoor smaller works in the Northshore Shed. All works are for sale."
