I promised you...

...a post about my favourite sculpture on our recent trip to Castlegar for the Sculpture Walk, and since I'm away from my desk here it is.  I love being able to schedule things for when I'm away!  Although this sculpture won the People's Choice Award for 2016, I missed the walk last year.  It's a knock-out sculpture and well-deserving of any award going, I think.


Rochelle steps in for her first look.

Imagine the stories indeed!

I'm loving that clothesline off the balcony...how about you, Eileen

This tiny trike is delightful.

While no fan of mice, this one's a cutie - and it doesn't MOVE!

Every house needs some music and dance.

The mosaic around the balcony is outstanding.

Detail everywhere!

Wonderful angles and line no matter where you look.

Rochelle checks out the cowboy - most unlike her!

We spent a great deal of time checking out all the fabulous details in this sculpture, and since it's been purchased as the People's Choice Award for 2016, you can too.  I highly recommend you make the trip - this sculpture alone is well worth the jaunt!

  11. You've got to love that while you were galavanting (with John, Bill and me) all over Canmore Blogger did as you requested in putting up this post.
    This is a most remarkable sculpture with all its facets and details. Is it made of rusted steel?
