Patrick Dougherty and his team of volunteers went back to work on the woven-wood sculpture today after a well-deserved break this past weekend. Several of the lairs are completed with only three left under construction and some finishing details left to be added. Dougherty anticipates that the sculpture will be completed by Saturday, August 21, so be sure to stop by this week if you want to see the work in progress.

Garden members will have an opportunity to attend an artist's talk with Patrick Dougherty this week during the Members' Summer Evening on Wednesday, August 18 at 7 p.m. Dougherty will discuss how his work was conceived and constructed as well as answer audience questions.

Here are some photos from the work site today:

Beautiful sculptures. We saw them from the beginning when they were the strange twig-like trees and then day by day, they turned into these beautiful scuptures. Can’t wait to see them when it is complete.
