Stick Sculpture talk Tuesday

“Stick Sculpture: Primitive Ways in an Accelerated World,” is the title for a Tuesday talk by artist Patrick Dougherty.

Dougherty’s presentation is the eighth and final talk in the National Tropical Botanical Garden and Kauai Community College collaborative series, “Plants for our Planet,” at 5:30 p.m. in the cafeteria at the KCC Campus Center.

“You want to make it look natural, off-handed or accidental, but you’re really working hard to come up with surface that you know has impact,” Dougherty said, explaining how he organizes sticks and branches to create a sense of movement. “This is about beauty; it touches on primordial feelings that people have about the natural world.”
