News:

Hector Santos has installed Fitting In (IV) Agua de Vida (Water of Life) in Marfa, Texas.

From The Big Bend Sentinel, June 12, 2024:

Agua De Vida is the fourth of the Fitting In series. The first Fitting In is located in Woodstock, Vermont, and is constructed entirely of stone and copper. Fitting In (II) is made of poured concrete and reclaimed slate shingles. It was trucked across the country and resides in Ojai, California. Fitting In (III) is constructed of reclaimed concrete, wood timbers and copper and is in the courtyard of the Art Queen complex in Joshua Tree, California.


peter and charlet davenportDirector Charlet Davenport has worked as an artist in Vermont since 1963. Her work in ceramic sculpture is influenced by many years of acting as Director of Sculpture Fest. Initially her ourdoor art installations were created on fibre glass mesh and installed in public spaces (St. Gaudens Historic National Park, The Rotunda at Dartmouth College Hopkins Center, the Vermont Carving Studio and Sculpture Center, the bank of the Hoosic River on Williams College Campus, Slater Mill, Pawtucket, RI, the TW Wood Art Center and a variety of other public and semi-public spaces.) Charlet was a panelist on the Transcendental Landscape Art Panel and Discussion at the Fruitlands Museum in Harvard, Massachusett in September 2012.

Peter Davenport, Co-Director of Sculpture Fest, is the one-man landscape force. Along with his duties as curator of the exhibition he aids artists in installing work, clearing sites, creating the signage, keeping everything clear for visitors as well as caring for the grounds throughout the exhibition time.

Both Davenports agree that land belongs to all of us and welcome the guests who come to Sculpture Fest each year.
