Just Around the Corner
New Harmony IN-2003, Patrick Dougherty

This architectural inspired sculpture is made of saplings that were harvested by the artist and University of Southern Indiana students. Intertwining the saplings to form a sculpture is very demanding process but the end result is amazing. The saplings were manipulated to form a sculpture that looked like a row of huts that were connected. The sculpture clearly shows the idea of windows and doors and is open to walk around in. The longevity of his pieces is not very lengthy because of decomposition of materials. This sculpture no longer stands, but once was in a field along a row of trees opposite the New Harmony Gallery.
