Sculpture Show

December 01, 2001 - MILO



Works of art in a variety of mediums are on display at the Milo Free Public Library until 4 pm December 8th.



Here you will find figures sculptured in Bronze; Granite; Plaster; Reinforced Gypsum; Stoneware; Terra Cotta; and Wood (black locust, black walnut, cocobolo, elm, and maple). This is but a small portion of well-known Sculptor, Rick Beckjord's work.



There is no problem in recognizing what these sculptures represent: People, animals, and living things. Life from the sea, classics from the past, and a beautiful granite "Bumble Bee." A granite "Scallop Shells Bird Bath and Starfish" adorned with a bronze "Sculpin" fish.




The classic statues include a black locust "Diana"; an elm "Shepardess and Lamb"; a black walnut "Black Angel" with Alewives; among other items.



The prespective in these works is very accurate, as is the natural flow of garments which could be compared to classical paintings. A favorite with young and old is the reinforced gypsum "Plumber's Helper."




Exhibits have taken place in other localities, including Ellsworth, Maine and Husson College, Bangor, Maine.



At least 20 people attended the November 10th show, including many from other localities. Numerous others have visited the exhibit since.



The library is open from 2-8 pm Mon Wed Fri & 2-4 pm Sat.
