A biscuit
Don Best “A biscuit, perhaps, while you’re up?” relief sculpture 33 x 28


Littlefield Gallery in Winter Harbor opened for the season May 29 with a show featuring sculptor Don Best. In this most recent body of work, Don uses an art form that has been around for over 6,000  years: Relief Sculpture. These visual narratives  are  told through his passion for animals.  Married to a veterinarian,  Don  has long used cats and dogs for subjects in his work.

Don has a BFA from the Maine College of Art and has done extensive  studies in wood at Haystack Mountain School on Deer Isle. Inspired by  his  study of Maine wild life, his  sculptures include life size wall pieces of  herons, loons, hawks and owls.

“One of the powerful aspects of relief is its relationship to narrative. Combining the best of painting, drawing and sculpture, the artist can choose, compose, and balance these elements.”
~Eugene Daub, Sculpture Review, Spring 2016

The gallery is open daily from 11-5:30. www.littlefieldgallery.com
