Arriving in the small village of Alexandria in the Eastern Cape in 1975, Maureen Quin had a large studio and office built in a sprawling, unkempt garden.

As the years passed by, she developed the garden into a place of beauty in which a magnitude of birds could nest in trees and shrubs, and with many of her sculptures exhibited on plinths, forming a synergy between art and nature.

A gallery was added on to her studio to house her unique collection of sculptures, paintings and sketches. Since then this has become her spiritual and inspirational home and it is here that her artistic talent has reached fulfillment in the creation of some of her most magnificent sculptures.

Twenty-five years ago saw the opening of the Quin Sculpture Garden and Gallery to the public and since then this mecca of art has become a major attraction for art loving people from all over the country and world.

The collection of more than 100 sculptures, paintings and sketches on view, represent a lifetime of work extending from Maureen’s student days in London, to her latest sculptures.  In her garden wildlife studies, portrait busts and figure studies are beautifully displayed at water features and amongst shrubs and trees.

In the well-appointed gallery, her collection of sculptures include the thought provoking “Hunt Series” displayed in a specially designed gallery, the “Ballet Series” and the “Interaction Series” of sculptures, while in adjoining gallery her pencil and charcoal sketches are on view.

The collection affords viewers a visual experience of her progression through stages of development, always dynamic in her approach to her subject matter while retaining the essential aesthetic and artistic values of composition and balance between form and space.
