The Esther Benedict Gallery event on Saturday drew a good number to the gallery in Pipe Creek, with each attendee perusing indoor and outdoor metal art throughout the day.

Among the eager possible art buyers were Joe and Jill Price and Bob and Jill Wood who posed with Benedict for a photo. The Prices and the Woods said many good things about the event, which is held four times a year.

“I moved down here from New York in 1996 after working on many things, including a 16-year career in horse shoeing in New York State,” said Benedict, who opened her gallery in 2018.

The art on display and for sale included giant animals, religious pieces and more.

Benedict was kind enough to take time to gush to the Bulletin about the art of sculpting.

“Sculpture is exciting, it's many sided, it's touchable, and it has light play off of it which gives a viewer multiple angles to get the meaning and message it brings. It is hardy and can withstand the elements, and over the centuries it still stands, she said. “How exciting and thrilling to be able to create a piece that will outlive the sculptor, and still gives to each viewer a piece of the message or feeling that was inspired by God,” she said.
