Artist to Give Public Talk Wednesday
July 22, 2008 — Artist Patrick Dougherty will discuss his work Wednesday, July 23, at 7 p.m. at the Albany County Public Library, 310 S. 8th St. Admission is free.
He will explain the evolution of his creative process working with saplings and the site-specific sculpture that is nearing completion on Prexy's Pasture. His sculpture is made from locally-found and harvested saplings that are woven into forms that are a response to, and inspired by, the site on which they are created.
Dougherty's sculpture is one of 17 works that comprise "Sculpture: A Wyoming Invitational." Sculptures are being installed on the UW campus and in Laramie. The exhibition officially opens with an opening celebration on Friday, Sept. 12, at 4 p.m. on Prexy's Pasture.
