What a night for a garden party, and June LaCombe's Hawk Ridge Farm proved the ultimate venue. More than 200 guests turned out  tonight for the full moon opening of "Between Earth and Sky," June's summer show of sculpture featuring more than 100 pieces from 30 artists. The work above is "Spring Eternal" by Gary Haven Smith.

While enjoying wine and hors d'oeuvres, we were invited to stroll through the field and gardens and admire the interplay between sculpture and landscape. The piece above is George Sherwood's "Curves of Life," and it does an elegant dance in the breeze.

Around every corner at this charming Pownal property are surprising and delightful forms. This grouping is made up of "Awakening" by Gary Haven Smith, "One Morning" and "Sunset" by Roy Patterson and an untitled work by Melita Westerlund referred to as "Sunflower."

As I was leaving, I was struck by how magical the setting sunlight looked as it sparkled in the splashing water of "Coming Around" by Gary Haven Smith. The show will remain on view through July 27. June says the show is open daily, and only asks that folks call before they stop by since the exhibition is located at the home she shares with her husband, Bill. Situated just past Bradbury Mountain State Park, it's worth the trip.

Be sure to pick up the June 19 edition of the Maine Sunday Telegram, where I'll have more photos and all the details on what people had to say about the show.

Until then, I hope to see you out and about.
