This fall, we enjoyed an extraordinary day with arts consultant June Lacombe at Hawk Ridge Farm in Pownal, Maine, both her home of 40 years and the grounds of her bi-annual exhibition of sculpture by Maine artists. As we wandered the rolling fields, woods trails, and flower gardens, we experienced both the artwork and the presence of June as integral to the landscape.
Here, June brings to life the sculptural quality of our Medulla tunic alongside the ceramic “TreeForms” of Sharon Townshend, and she connects the sacred geometry of our Body Story top with both George Sherwood’s shimmering stainless steel “Memory of Fibonacci” and David Allen’s expansive stonework “Fissure.” June’s physical engagement with the horses, peacocks and gardens of her homestead echoes the spirit of our Latchkey jacket’s poem about the animation of houses and rooms of the soul and, in the In Libris tunic, June radiates her passion for connecting art with place and artists with the public while on the granite back of the intense “Gliding Owl” by Andreas von Huene; with the support of “Mother” by Lisa Becu; through the frame of David Allen’s granite “O”; and while linking arms with Miles Chapin’s granite “Bloom.”
Of her experience on this magical day, June says, “I found slipping into your beautifully designed clothes to be an extension of the art that surrounds me. They were soothing to my soul.”
