Stemwinder Saturday open studio set
Warren — Stemwinder Sculpture Works & Gardens will host an open studio Saturday, Oct. 6 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Stemwinder is owned and operated by sculptor Jay Sawyer. His gallery showcases typically 50 or more sculptures, almost all well-suited for permanent outdoor exposure.
As the season winds down and locals are trying to squeeze in those activities they couldn’t during the summer, Sawyers extends an invitation to come by his sculpture garden and tour the grounds. All his current works will be back at Stemwinder after returning home from two different group shows. The most recent, at Engine in Biddeford, featured several of Sawyer’s spheres in a variety of themes and sizes.
During the last week of September, Sawyer was at work installing one of his works at the Owls Head Transportation Museum. His first permanent museum piece, "Endless Trot" will be the centerpiece for Millstone Park when construction is finished. "Endless Trot" is comprised of more than 500 used horseshoes, many of which Sawyer collected over time from dozens of locations. Many of Sawyer's works are inspired by reclaimed materials and a strong appreciation for form and balance.
Stemwinder is located at 131 Camden Road/Route 90, just a quarter mile from Route 1; look for the patriotic pickup truck. For more information on Sawyer and his work, visit StemwinderSculpture.com or call 273-3948. The gallery is open every Sunday and Monday through October from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., rain or shine.
