« Caught By The Moon »
Beginning Thanksgiving weekend, Georgeville visitors will discover an intriguing sculpture newly installed outside in front of Georgeville Studio. "Caught By The Moon" consists of a shiny stainless steel sphere suspended from a vertical, curved piece of black granite. The combination creates a dynamic sculpture.
The highly mirrored sphere reflects the surrounding landscape and the ever-changing sky. The sculpted form of the black granite evokes multiple images - a bird's wing in flight, a majestic spinnaker fully extended, or a windsurfer's outstretched sail on Lake Memphremagog, or as the title suggests, a space object housed in a moonscape.
"Caught By The Moon" was created by David James, a sculptor from the Eastern Townships whose pieces are in private, corporate and museum collections from British Columbia to Saudi Arabia. The Department of Canadian Heritage has recognized the outstanding contribution and national significance of his work.
James last exhibited at Georgeville Studio in 2009. The Sherbrooke Museum of Fine Arts mounted a solo exhibition of his work in 2017 to celebrate its 35th anniversary. This summer, Arts Sutton presented his creations to celebrate it's 41st anniversary.
