Sam Ekwurtzel's "On the Beach" on Display at Real Art Ways
New London artist Sam Ekwurtzel blurs the lines between sculpture and seafaring with On the Beach, an exhibit appearing at Real Art Ways until mid-August. Ekwurtzel's large-scale designs (that's one pictured above), made out of native white pine, brownstone, cast iron and concrete shaped with some home-made and crude equipment, were inspired by his adventures in boat-building, engineering and navigation. His sculptures have appeared in galleries in NYC, Richmond, Va. and Louisville, Ky.
