Opening at FLCC - Wayne Williams
Our friend and colleague, Wayne Williams, presented an explanation of the process he used to complete a large set of bronze statues commissioned by a consortium of historical organizations.
His presentation model commemorating the treaty between the United States of America and the Seneca Indian Nation includes an Indian family. The sculpture will be displayed in Canandaigua near to where the actual document was signed.
Former science teacher, Lee Drake, also attended the opening and is pictured with Marlene Williams, who is the wife of the artist.
Wayne talked to a large group of FLCC students who were most interested. Many of them have an interest in sculpture and were delighted to listen to the complex process of creating life-size human figures.
After the formal presentation, Wayne answered individual questions.
The gallery display includes several photos of the development and process of Wayne's work.
The installation of the sculpture will take place in mid-November.
