Garden Sculpture Exhibition & Iron Pour for a Cure
At Sanctuary Arts, Eliot Maine

Open House June 18, (rain date June 19) 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Sea serpents adorn the helmet of a shy warrior perched on the blue stone walkway in the midst of fragrant and colorful gardens designed and planted by artist Judy Andrews at Sanctuary Arts. It’s time for the Third Annual Sculpture Garden Exhibition, Iron Pour and Open House at Sanctuary Arts, Art School and Sculpture Center, 117 Bolt Hill Rd., Eliot, Maine.

The exhibit launches with an open house and artist reception on June 18, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and continues through September. The Open House will include a tour of Green Foundry, our iron, bronze and aluminum casting studio, and a public Iron Pour into hand carved “scratch molds” to create tiles that can be taken home that day.

The lush gardens are complemented by the work of regional professional sculptors, creating a symbiosis that enhances both the work and the plantings. Visitors are invited to enjoy the beauty of original sculpture, relax on the grounds, feed the chickens and perhaps create a small iron tile to take home that day. Medallic sculptor Linda McVay's studio will also be open for viewing. A partial listing of exhibiting regional artists includes Antoinette Schultze. Gary Haven Smith, Sumner Winebaum, Anne Thompson, Nancy Sander, Lindley Briggs, David Allard, Don Severance, Alexander Renard, Elizabeth Ostrander, Michael Stasiuk, Gary Rathmell, Alan Eves, David Davies and Christopher Gowell.

“Not to be missed is a “Hot” fund raising event to benefit our artist friend Ali Goodwin, recently diagnosed with breast cancer. Cast iron with Green Foundry, friends, and students who will be hosting Iron Pour for a Cure. A donation of $10 will purchase a “scratch” mold- a block of hardened sand. Participants will carve a design into their mold. At 2:00 the crew at Green Foundry will cast molten iron into all the scratch molds prepared. Participants can take their masterpieces home at the end of the pour!
