The Quin Book
Maureen Quin: Sixty Years of Excellence
In 2014 Maureen Quin celebrates 60 years as a professional sculptress. This book reveals and discusses her development, her tenacity and passion.
“The happiness we all yearn for does not depend on circumstance – it depends on your inner self. Therefor our struggle for freedom is not from oppression of man but from the oppression of our own petty jealousies and materialism.” ~ Maureen Quin.
Maureen Quin hosted "Bronze & Bubbles" in her garden as part of the Great Kenton Wine Festival this year. 40 Guests were invited to watch Zano Ntobela pour a bronze sculpture and thereafter enjoy MCC tasting with Riette Eggink from Montpellier de Tulbagh. It was an outstanding success.
