Open studio at Stemwinder
Warren — Sculptor Jay Sawyer will host an open studio Saturday, July 7 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at his outdoor sculpture gallery at 131 Camden Road/Route 90, one quarter mile from Route 1 with the patriotic pickup at the entrance.
Sawyer has plenty of new sculpture showcased over three acres of the park-like grounds, and commission work for 2012 is already in swing. Much of Sawyer's work is comprised of found materials, almost all with a Maine history.
Much of this winter's work included spheres made with sheer rings that were salvaged from an early hangar at the Brunswick Naval Air Station. The rings were left to Sawyer by his late friend and mentor, David McLaughlin, whose work is featured this summer at Waterfall Arts Belfast. McLaughlin had acquired the sheer rings from Barnstormers, a company in Portland that salvages industrial and architectural lumber and repurposes the material.
