Canadian sculptor hosts final exhibition

GUELPH/ERAMOSA – Artists, art lovers, and historians, this is your chance to own a great piece of Canadian sculpture by the celebrated Master Sculptor Andreas Drenters.


At age 84, Drenters is laying aside his tools and creative endeavors in order to dedicate more time with his family, especially to his granddaughter Lucy.

Drenters, along with his family, will stage one last final large public exhibition and sale of his sculptures.

Drenters began as an artisanal blacksmith and a self-taught mechanic. These skills combined with his love of nature, laid the foundation for his long sculpting career.

His works can be found in many private and public collections across Canada and around the world. The early works are inspired by his deep reference for hand-smithed material of Ontario’s pioneer era.

The exhibition will run Friday Oct. 8 from 1 to 7pm, Saturday Oct. 9 from 10am to 5pm and Sunday Oct. 10 from 10am to 5pm.

The exhibition and sale will take place on a family farm located at 5242 Wellington Road 29, Guelph/Eramosa.
