We are pleased to share that National Sculptors' Guild Associate Dan Glanz's Tree Top Stretch bronze monument was one of the select new additions to Loveland's Benson Sculpture Garden this year. The park continues to grow each year through the proceeds generated from each annual Sculpture in the Park show now housing over 150 sculptures. We urge you to experience all of Loveland's Public Art collection during your next visit to Columbine Gallery.
"For many years we lived in the beautiful Ponderosa Pine and Douglas Fir forest outside Loveland, Colorado, surrounded by wildlife we would see on an almost daily basis. We were always excited to see the wildlife; deer, black bears, elk, bobcats, coyotes, wild turkeys, and many more animals. However, it was the elusive mountain lion, while only occasionally spotted on the mountain, we knew was always close by.
On many occasions, we found tracks in the snow at the edge of the trees and half-eaten prey on our walks around our ridgetop. I would make it a habit, especially in winter, to go out in the early morning darkness to see if there were four-legged visitors nearby before letting our dogs outside. One snowy morning, with my headlamp illuminating the darkness, I discovered fresh mountain lion tracks in the snow on our steep drive only to realize that less snow had fallen in the lion’s tracks in front of me than the track I made behind me just 3 minutes earlier. I followed them back toward the house and discovered the lion had been watching me not 50 feet away. I’m sure it wasn’t the first time, nor the last, we had been closely watched.
“Tree Top Stretch” began as a commissioned piece that gave me the opportunity to describe the powerful stealthy, yet reclusive, feline in a more relaxed manner. The big cat is beginning the evening’s hunt, limbering up on an old treetop, more than likely a daily ritual." -Daniel Glanz
Owned and operated by the father/daughter team of John & Alyson Kinkade the Gallery and Garden artfully displays over 800 sculptures plus many paintings by renowned local and national artists to provide a tranquil atmosphere for art appreciators wishing to reduce the external details of the world and indulge in the true essence of art ~ a world of visual play and internal moods. Perched above a pond with a view of the Rockies, the NSG Sculpture Garden is an acre filled with unusual botanical specimens and over 100 sculptures. All of the artwork in the gallery and garden is for sale. As a result, the look is constantly changing.
