Dear Friends I am so excited to introduce my new body of artistic expression with you. It has been a long time of creative drought for me. Dealing with my Mom’s illness and death left me drained and reevaluating my whole life. This required all of my “creative” energy. But finally after last Thanksgiving the creative juices have been flowing again, leaving me very grateful, excited and curious.
I am exploring the realm of hanging, moving sculpture- the Art Mobile.
Are you ready to get outside and take in beautiful sculptures?
My copper Mobiles will be part of this exhibit: CLARITY 2020
Featuring Stephen Porter with thirty other outstanding artists
Hawk Ridge Farm Pownal, Maine
June 1st– July 19th, 2020
Outdoors and by appointment only
Give June LaCombe a call or email, so she can assure that there are not too many people walking the sculpture trail at the same time and feeding their soul with beautiful art.

In these uncertain and sometimes very depressing times, we all can use something to lift up our spirits and giving lightness to our souls.
This is what the mobiles are doing for me and I am certain it will have a similar effect on you. Waking up to the colorful shapes, suspended in the air, makes me start the day with a big smile on my face. Watching the gentle movement feels so mesmerizing and meditative. It calms the nervous system, quiets the nagging thought patterns and awakens curiosity, appreciation and joy. In other words, it can be the perfect wellness tool for troubled times 🙂

Bring Art into your life- Enjoy wonderful 3 dimensional sculptural work.
On May 20th you have a chance to visit the beautiful sculpture garden at Hawk Ridge Farm for “Embracing Earth”. A number of my pieces are included in the show. The image below is “Spring Series #1”, a piece that is hammered out of a flat sheet of copper.
I look forward to meeting you at the opening. Or you will enjoy a stroll through the wooded sculpture path at any other time you can make it. More information is below.
Another sculpture show “Power of Place” will open on June 7th in Wells Reserve at Laudholm Wells. I am still working on a piece that will be included in that show. I can’t wait to finish it and have you be able to see and interact with it.
Enjoy the slow coming spring. Antje
New work by Gary Haven Smith
Hawk Ridge Farm Pownal, Maine
May 20th – July 23rd, 2017
May Wine Opening Reception

Sculpture by New England artists shown in country home and gardens and along woodland trail.
Some of you might be aware of the sculpture show curated by June LaCombe, Autumn at Hawk Ridge Farm.
Here is the link to images of the sculpture show: Autumn at Hawk Ridge. Please browse through them. It is not the same as seeing them first hand in nature. But you will get an idea of the great diversity of sculptural expression.
You can see my sculptures in the company of so many great pieces by about 30 Maine artists. My sculptures are images # 13, 28 and 81.
Here is a photo I took of “Uprising” on the sculpture path. This is the first time this piece is installed in the woods. I always had it in open spaces. See what you think and let me know.
And as a preview, I am inspired to work on different shapes and forms and created the first model in copper. It also can stand as a smaller sculpture by itself. Just in case I want to play in a bigger scale, I might leave my bending tools in a different spot for the winter, so they will not be covered by big snowbanks. Well, it depends on how cold it will get this winter.
Enjoy the turn of the season and keep beauty in your life.
