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.”
