Last night was the Opening of the Tuscarawas County Art Guild’s “Fall Show”. The Guild will be detailing that event in their “Newsletter”, but it did allow me to gain access to the “Quail Explosion” sculpture that I have been writing about in previous Blog Posts and get some photos.
These are photos on the finished “Quail Explosion”. The quality leaves a lot to be desired, however, if I get the sculpture back from the show (It is for sale and “Hope Springs Eternal” – Alexander Pope) I will take some better images.
You will notice in the upper image there is a crowd gathered around a picture on the right wall. You will also notice that they have their backs to my sculpture. Here’s why:
This is what the Folks are looking at. The heads are all carved out of individual potatoes, dried, and mounted in a weave pattern inside the frame.
The piece won a well deserved award. If you get a chance to go to the Tuscarawas County Art Center before the show closes in December, it will be well worth your time.
