Sculpturefest 2015

Saturday June 27, 2015
Woodstock, VT

The 2015 Sculpturefest season opened this weekend at the Prosper Road outdoor gallery and at an annex gallery in the village with works placed at the Elementary School, the Norman Williams Library, Blue Horse Inn and the History Center. Charlet and Peter Davenport, each year, open their farm to artists who create in a variety of media in a variety of sizes. From Herb Ferris's sculptures created from trees he finds around his house to Hector Santos who builds these incredible stone pieces that invite you to climb and explore to Jamie Payne who molds chicken wire into geometric designs that will house climbing plants.
This year's featured artists are Paul Machalaba, a Woodstock High School graduate, who unveiled a new thirteen foot high aluminum sculpture in front of the Dana House History Center on June 25. The work previously in place by Machalaba was commissioned by Patrick Fultz and taken to Fultz's Sleep Woodstock location on Rte 4. The new sculpture will be on loan from Machalaba throughout the season.

The other featured artist is Liz Fletcher who creates whimsical pieces of kiln fired ceramic, her works include "Emerging Fish", "Prayer of Rana" and "Heroes of the Next Civilization."

The exhibit runs until the snow flies with many of the pieces remaining on site until next year. The Davenport's invite people to tour and picnic throughout the summer and fall. More information: http://www.sculpturefest.org/
