News:

Bonnie Gale's Living Willow sculpture continues to develop.


Joseph Fichter, a frequent Sculpturefest artist, sends this update:

In 2015, I received a commission from the city of Grand Junction, Colorado to create six larger than life (1.5 life-size) horse sculptures. These wild horses will be the “main feature” as people enter the city from Interstate 70. I will be placing these sculptures in the two roundabouts drivers enter as they exit the highway or travel from the airport into the city. The installation will be in July 2016.

I have almost completed the final horse sculpture for Grand Junction, CO. Here are photos of five sculptures completed.

Until a late June 2016 departure, the horse sculptures can be viewed from Cory Hill Road in Putney, VT. For further information, you may contact me at the phone number below.

Director Charlet Davenport has worked as an artist in Vermont since 1963. Currently her work in ceramic sculpture is influenced by many years of acting as Director of Sculpture Fest. Initially her ourdoor art installations were created on fibre glass mesh and installed in public spaces (St. Gaudens Historic National Park, The Rotunda at Dartmouth College Hopkins Center, the Vermont Carving Studio and Sculpture Center, the bank of the Hoosic River on Williams College Campus, Slater Mill, Pawtucket, RI, the TW Wood Art Center and a variety of other public and semi-public spaces.) Charlet was a panelist on the Transcendental Landscape Art Panel and Discussion at the Fruitlands Museum in Harvard, Massachusett in September 2012.

Charlet has new works in the following exhibitions:

  • Bennington Bards and Birds, North Bennington Vermont: 19th annual outdoor sculpture show opening July 23 and continuing through October 23
  • A Small Reflection on the Nature of Frederic Kennard, Kennard Park Sculpture Trail, Newton Center, MA, September 1 – November 11 (opening party September 10th, 1pm to 5pm)

peter davenportPeter Davenport, Co-Director of Sculpture Fest, is the one-man landscape force. Along with his duties as curator of the exhibition he aids artists in installing work, clearing sites, creating the signage, keeping everything clear for visitors as well as caring for the grounds throughout the exhibition time.

Both Davenports agree that land belongs to all of us and welcome the guests who come to Sculpture Fest each year.
