Gemini in Boerne Texas
Dear Art Lover,
I have been working in Texas for several days now, back in my former studio/home. Saturday, John and I drove to the re-opening of the new Sculptor’s Dominion large garden sculpture exhibition in the new location in Boerne, Texas.
We brought my bronze figure sculpture “Gemini” with us and put her up on a pedestal. The site is the home of Gilbert E. Barrera, a friend of mine for many years after he traveled from his former home in San Antonio to Austin in order to connect with other sculptors. He came to the Elisabet Ney Sculpture Conservatory, where I was teaching at the time and where the home of the Texas Society of Sculptors was back in the mid-1990s and early 2000. And a bunch of us helped him start his dream show.
His new location is his family ranch of about 300 acres. I understand from some of the guests this past weekend that the Barrera family is well-known and respected in San Antonio. Gilbert’s father is famous and recently turned 90 years old. He still practices law. Gilbert has done a lot of work on this property, including restoring an old log cabin from the time of the famous battle at The Alamo. It is a beautiful location. The old oak trees are amazing, a personal love of mine.
Gilbert exhibits all styles of sculpture and materials that are strong for outdoor display. You are sure to find something that you enjoy there and hopefully want to add to YOUR garden! If you find yourself in central Texas, please contact Gilbert for a visit to the Sculptor’s Dominion. You may reach him on Facebook or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
I hope you enjoy the images here, which also show just a few of the many large or really large outdoor sculptures!
