The annual Sculpturefest exhibition at the Woodstock home of Charlet and Peter Davenport has grown substantially over the past few years, adding venues at the nearby King Farm and at the Woodstock History Center in Woodstock village. This year, the show is growing again, but in time rather than space. Typically a fall event that runs roughly from Labor Day through foliage season, Sculpturefest opened this year’s installment to the public last weekend, with new sculptures by several artists. Above, Charlet Davenport walks through the arched sculpture “Fitting In” by Hector Santos. At right, “Vessel,” a sculpture by Norwich artist Ria Blaas, is suspended above a pond. At lower right is “Awating the Hour,” by Bruce Hathaway. The public is welcome to tour the exhibition, which is at 304 Prosper Road in Woodstock. Directions are at sculpturefest.org.
