You are cordially invited to our second annual Sculpture Garden Open
House. Come view the work of accomplished regional sculptors. Some of
them, I am proud to say, are former Sanctuary Arts students who have
become professional sculptors, and some are professional sculptor
colleagues and instructors.
The Sculpture Garden was designed and planted by artist Judy Andrews,
with a blue stone walkway by Alan Eves and stone walls under
construction by sculptor Steven Carpenter.
Schedule of events:
Sculpture Garden - Open all day
Open Studio-Linda Preble McVay,
11am – 1pm
Bronze Pour - 1:00pm
Stone Carving Demonstration by Alexander Renard- 3pm – 5pm
If Trees Were Men by Joyce Audy Zarins
|Linda Preble McVay will open her studio from 11 til 1. Both Linda and Lindley Briggs, who is showing work in the Sculpture Garden, recently returned from Tampera, Finland where their bronze medals are on exhibit at the world's largest medal exhibition.
Part of the mission of Sanctuary Arts is to introduce our community to the processes and beauty of the sculptural arts. With that in mind, we also are celebrating our Green Foundry's fifth anniversary with a public bronze pour at 1:00.

Newly married foundry principals Lauren Holmgren and Josh Dow will execute the pour. The creation of this bronze, iron, and aluminum casting facility was a big step on the path to becoming a casting destination for working sculptors.
From 3 til 5 pm, Alexander Reynard will demonstrate stone carving techniques. Reynard, a professional sculptor in the classic tradition, was trained in Armenia and Russia, lived and sculpted stone in Alaska for 17 years, and now resides in Eliot, Maine. He specializes in figure, portrait and wildlife sculptures in soapstone, alabaster, marble and granite. Come and welcome this accomplished sculptor to our community.
Here is just a hint of what you might see at the Open House:
