International Sculpture Day Honors and Other News

31 years after creating and installing the "Boy and Dog" in downtown Langley, Georgia was honored for her contributions to public art at a ceremony held at the park where the sculpture is located. The event was part of the International Sculpture Day celebration on April 22.

Good friend and long time supporter Pam Schell introduced Georgia. Sculpture Northwest President Wade Marlow represented his organization. Langley Mayor Tim Callison presented Georgia with the City's "Pin of Excellence", noting not only her achievements in the Arts, but also her ongoing role in the community and support of local non-profits. http://www.langleywa.org/








Other News and Photos  

 

Hip Hop has become a focal point of the Point Ruston Community on the Tacoma Waterfront. Originally installed on a trial basis, it has now been purchased and will remain as a permanent installation.

The University Village in Seattle commissioned an interactive sculpture to celebrate the completion of their expansion last Summer. The Village has been a great supporter of Georgia's, with this installation joining her "Coming Home" (Cows and Calves recalling the Dairy Farm era of the property) and "Water Frolic" ( A water feature sculpture with a squirting battle between a group of Frogs and Turtles).  https://uvillage.com/



The sculpting stage. The dimensions of the proposed site are replicated in the studio. Always a little dicey when working from architectural drawings but the bronze fit nicely.














Long time assistant Virginia Keck on site for the hectic installation day. The Fountain was being completed and the Sculpture installed at the same time - two days before the grand opening. The place was buzzing with finish workers. Made it.


















The City of Camas, in Southwest Washington, has a burgeoning public art program. Here is Georgia with Arlo and her Springer Spaniel, installed in the fall of 2015. This year the city will be installing a series of 13 of Georgia's birds throughout downtown, creating a sculptural version of an urban bird watching tour.








"Leap Rabbits" was placed at Prairie Fire in Overland Park, Kansas, in 2014. The owners sent this photo to show how the sculptures have been received.

Foundry Swallows Take Wing

The young swallows nesting in the foundry took flight yesterday for the first time and this one chose to rest on a forged garden sculpture that Georgia made back in her blacksmithing days.

"Spring Song" Placed in Beautiful Backyard Garden

We placed the new "Spring Song" in a wonderfully designed backyard garden in the Madison Park area yesterday. Thanks to the new owner for permission to show these photos. Appropriately, we added a "Madison Park Wren" to the fountain. This is from an edition of these wrens we were allowed to create from one of the five different birds that were part of the nearby 2013 Triangle Park Public Installation which features Georgia's Springer Spaniel, "Katie"

Hip Hop Installed at Point Ruston Community

Point Ruston is a new waterfront neighborhood just north of Tacoma, Washington, and next to one of the jewels of the northwest, the 700 acre Point Defiance Park. It is a brand new community offering living, dining, shopping, entertainment, and recreation on the water's edge in one of the most beautiful parts of the Puget Sound. It is built along nearly a mile of shoreline and has panoramic views of both the Olympic and Cascade Mountains, including Mount Rainier.

Managing Partner Mike Cohen and his team have place an emphasis on including Art throughout the project and along the open public walkway connecting Point Defiance Park and the already existing Ruston Waterfront Walkway. Just before the Grand Opening in November, "Hip Hop" was installed in the main plaza area of the project.
