Sonoma County Sculpture Trail Exhibit: May 8 2015 – May 5, 2016by Joyce Mann

First there was anticipation in Cloverdale and Geyserville followed by excitement as new sculptures were installed for the 2015-2016 Sculpture Trail in downtown Cloverdale and Geyserville. The Sculpture Trail is a year-round, outdoor exhibit with sculptures changing every May, sponsored by the Cloverdale Arts Alliance and the Geyserville Community Foundation. The new contemporary sculptures range from the humorous to thought provoking and one with a message. “One-Eye Jack” by sculptor Joe Bologna of Alamo, is an humorous red steel head, 60” talI by 36” by 24” deep, watching the people passing by in Geyserville with his one good eye. In Cloverdale, Santa Rosa artist, Peter Crompton’s thought provoking sculpture is “Wing Obelisk”. Its measurements of 129” in height by 46” wide by 46” deep are based on the golden mean or ratio principal. On display in Cloverdale is “GMO Heifer” by Michael Seymour of Forestville. The artist through his abstract vision of a genetically altered calf is sending a message. 10 new sculptures in Cloverdale and 8 new sculptures in Geyserville will be added to the sculptures already on display. The sculptures can be viewed until May 5, 2016 when new sculptures will replace the current exhibit. Additional information can found at
