Library staff member Larry Corbett joined fellow artists MaJo Keleshian, Lydia Cassatt, and Deborah Jellison for an exhibition entitled Meditations. The artists' works were displayed in UMaine's Carnegie Hall from February 20th - March 26th.
Corbett has worked at Fogler Library since 1990. Those familiar with the Library will know him from his duties in the Media Resource Center. He began working at wood carving several years ago. "A few hours here and there...with no real purpose in mind." In the spring of 1998, what began as a small exploration became a five-year period of continuous production.
"During that time, I amassed a collection of over 100 individual pieces ranging in size from a few inches to over eight feet in height. I have, without hesitation, borrowed ideas and forms from all over the world...Most of my carving is done outside under the open sky. Perhaps this is where most of the pleasure of carving comes from, the simple process of chipping away and being under the sky where I can hear the birds, and of course, the black flies and mosquitoes."
