If you’ve visited the Arboretum lately, you may have noticed some interesting new denizens. There’s Percy, the tortoise, lumbering toward the pond, Friskie, the slavering dog, straining at the chain attached to a fireplug, trying to get at Peaches, the cat, precariously perched in a metal hoop — these and others are the imaginative work of Edwin Falk, a sculptor who repurposes pieces of machinery and other bits and pieces to create whimsical statuary.
Those of you who have admired the wonderfully oversized works artist Sam Bates placed in the fields around the Arboretum will also be delighted by a third installation, completed this spring.
All of the sculptures are for sale. If you are interested, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
A dinosaur is also lurking, joining the other creatures as soon as his refurbishing is complete!
