sculpture ̶w̶a̶l̶k̶ ride (part two)

29 Aug

As I mentioned in my post yesterday, my beau and I rode our bikes around town on the weekend to check out the local sculpturewalk . There were far too many gorgeous photos from the day to share in one post, so here is the second half of my camera snaps:

Man in Motion by Denis KleineDon’t Look… Listen. by Jacob TolmieSentinel by Carl Sean McMahon Man Waiting by Sergio RaffoSoaring by Spring Shine Three Options Are Open by Martin EichingerNatural Wonders by Michelle Moushey Dale Kinetic Weather Disturbance Ensemble by Douglas Walker (with the BEST artist statement ever: “Blessed with the heart of a boy, the hands of a man,and a goodly shot of Dr. Seuss, I tamper, reshape and reform common things, hoping to warm the hearts  of passerby.“)
Many of the pieces were so impressive, imaginative and breath-taking! John and I are both still struggling to chose our favorite piece for the People’s Choice Award Ballot, as there are easily five front runners. The winning sculpture will be purchased by the City of Castlegar for it’s permanent collection, and over $5000 in prizes get awarded to the participating artists. I’m so proud to live in a town that puts serious investments towards its cultural and artistic growth! There is so much more than just beautiful river and mountain views, there’s also incredible art on all of my horizons.

    Great art indeed. It is a good thing that people can admire art – art in its different forms.

    Thanks so much for sharing these pictures Jess! As we at The Pynelogs Cafe have been diligently listening to Johnny on the radio every morning (right after we check your blog :), we have heard many ads for sculpturewalk. Seeing your pictures satisfied my imagination! Some very cool art pieces.

    These are wonderful. Thanks for taking us along with you. I think “Natural Wonders” is my favorite.
