THE 2017 ELORA SCULPTURE PROJECT
This sculpture is called the Gatekeeper. The Gray Jay is carved from Indiana Limestone and is perched on a "gate post" carved from Travertine (Adair Marble). I chose to submit a Whiskey Jack as it has newly been appointed as Canada's National Bird and this is Canada's 150th anniversary year. The Gatekeeper is one of 18 sculptures in downtown Elora and Fergus as part of www.elorasculpture.ca
DORSET HEALTH HUB SCULPTURE "CONNECTIONS"
"Connections" (2016) was carved in a 5 foot tall block of yellow limestone by Elise Muller for the Healing Garden in front of the Dorset Community Health Care Hub on Main Street Dorset. The sculpture and garden was made possible by a generous donation from Peter Goring. "Connections" captures an Autumnal Family Walk as Dorset is well known for the Scenic Lookout Tower in the Fall. The sculpture shows their connection to each other and to their environment. There is something very healing about spending time in nature doing physical things like walking together. This is Elise's first major Public Art Commission.
