Foundry art

Artist Kate Springford, of Waitati, inspects her sculpture at an exhibition at Pea Sea Art in Port Chalmers on Saturday.

The exhibition runs until May 21 and is a fundraiser for the Port Chalmers Foundry Trust.

Secretary Kris Smith said the trust had been working ‘‘really constructively’’ with the Dunedin City Council on a memorandum of understanding so it could progress plans to restore the old foundry as well as construct a new multipurpose community centre with a focus on visual and performance arts.

The trust was also excited about plans for the Foundry Festival in October which would utilise Port Chalmers venues and feature local performers.
