Celebrate! Wisconsin Sculptors 2017
The inaugural year of Celebrate! Wisconsin Sculptors 2017 exhibited in the Village of Egg Harbor, Wisconsin. As visitors strolled through the public spaces in the Village, they saw outstanding sculptural works of art created by four of Wisconsin’s finest artists.
“The Weaver” by Chilton artist, Teresa Lind, is on display at the Peg Egan Performing Arts Center. Using cast aluminum and steel, Lind’s art reflects the strength of women and their stories, as shown by the realistic woman weaving her own flowing dress made of steel wire.
Village View Park is where you will find Adam Meurer of Mequon’s “Colored Mast”. There is an inherent sense of movement as the surrounding light and colors are reflected and absorbed in his 10 foot, steel and resin cast abstracted boat’s mast.
Fish Creek artist, Patty Degenhardt’s “Universal Mother” cast in bronze with a verdigris patina, is nestled among the trees at the entrance of the Bird/Nature Park. Her abstracted, biomorphic mother embraces and nurtures her young swathed within her arms.
Looking out across Egg Harbor, a young boy with periscope in hand sitting upon a turtle is the sculpture “Natural Wonders” created by Edgerton artist Michele Moushey Dale. Her bronze, which is located in Harbor View Park, invites the viewer in for a closer look at the unexpected surprises of small plants and animals.
