Make way for sculpture

Creator of 'Ducklings' statues in Boston is honorary chair of Pingree exhibit

(Continued)

The show will include an appearance by sand sculptor Justin Gordon of Groveland, who will create likenesses of three students from Sept. 2 to 7 in front of the school, where the public is welcome to watch him work.

Gordon will be unloading the sand on Sept. 2 and will begin sculpting it the next day, said Judy Klein, director of communications at Pingree.

There are a number of abstract works in the show, including Whitmore Boogarts’ “Upward Life Force,” made of steel and glass, and Shawn Farrell’s “Cogs” and “Dome Tower.”

Buddy Quinn, a recent graduate of Montserrat College of Art, has contributed a steel figure called “Pilot,” while Brad Story of Essex will exhibit “In the Tropics,” an airborne creature that takes wing from his imagination.

Schon said she doesn’t know a lot of other artists and doesn’t go to many exhibits, but she is honored to be chairing Pingree’s event, where she will speak at a reception for the artists on Sunday, Sept. 8.

“It can’t be a nicer place to have a sculpture show,” she said. “The quality of the sculpture is exquisite.”

If you go What: Flying Horse Outdoor Sculpture Exhibit Where: Pingree School, 537 Highland St., Hamilton When: Sept. 1 to Nov. 24, with artists' reception Sunday, Sept. 8, at 3 p.m. Sand sculptor Justin Gordon working in front of school Sept. 2 to 7.
