Sculptor Patrick Dougherty creates large pieces the public may admire, touch and even wander through, and a new cluster of them have grown at the Montreal Botanical Garden. Paul Larson speaks with Dougherty about his choice of material, the help he gets from volunteers and the temporary nature of grand art made entirely out of sticks. The three new works in Montreal are among the more than two hundred-seventy-five pieces the North Carolina artist has made all over the world, in places including Japan, France and all over the United States. This “Spotlight” segment premiered on the program Mountain Lake Journal. “Spotlight” is made possible, in part, by the Glenn and Carol Pearsall Adirondack Foundation, dedicated to improving the quality of life for year-round residents of the Adirondack Park. “Spotlight” is also supported by the chamber music organization Hill and Hollow Music.
