Art on the Trail: Cherry Valley Artworks event brings
sculpture to community; opening to be held Friday, July 2

By KEVIN LIMITI • Special to www.AllOTSEGO.com

CHERRY VALLEY – The biennial Cherry Valley Sculpture Trail will open with a viewing and launch party scheduled for Friday, July 2.

Jane Sapinsky, executive director of Cherry Valley Artworks, said this year’s sculpture trail stands out because of the “beautiful pieces” and said that it is a “COVID-friendly activity.”

There are 24 sculptures, ranging from small ones to half-ton sized.

One piece, by Shiro Shinohara of Westmoreland, was more than 1,000 pounds and had to be delivered by crane. It’s called the“Baku Nightmare Buster.”

Other pieces on display include “Whole Earth Cabinet,” which was created by the Dora P. Manny Collective in West Winfield. The idea behind the cabinet, according to Sapinsky, is “give
a little, take a little.” Visitors can take things from the cabinet while leaving something else behind.

“We thought it was a good community activity,” Sapinsky said.
