Sammy Sammy, the legend of Hornby Island has come to grunt, despite his urgings that grunt should come to him. "Bring them all up here," he said, to his Place of the Woods where he creates his masterpieces of folk art. For those who have never heard of him, Sammy Sammy was a poet, philosopher, troubadour, cowboy who made sculptures out of reinforced concrete that were "suitable for decorations in flower beds or lawns." He worked with cement, moss, concrete, and paint (among other things) to create raw, stark pieces of folk art. http://www.firstvisionart.com/daina/sammy.html

Paul McDonald's interest lies in furniture and decor, and his show will consist of 7 or 8 groupings of furniture, with exotic and evocative names such as "Mesopotamia", "Empire", and "inquisition". The evocation of other times, other cultures was accidental, but effective and attractive. The artist's emphasis is on the finishing, although the shapes and styles of the pieces are all original and beautiful, some having been happened upon, some designed specially for the show. Using such techniques as "faux marble," gilding and glazing, McDonald seeks to create a sense of age and richness in his woods and fabric.
