Get your very own Skowhegan Indian!
The Skowhegan Area Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce a new fundraising partnership featuring the work of local whittler, Sharon Kimball. The artistry is amazing as Sharon has created three pieces of art for the Skowhegan-lover in your family. The three pieces are various-sized depictions of Bernard Langlais’ iconic masterwork, The Skowhegan Indian. Sharon has created three sized works to scale including a …17-inch, an 11-inch and a 4-inch ornament-sized Indian. The proceeds from the sales of these statues will go towards an evolving maintenance and stewardship account for the Indian to beautify the statue, the area around it and for continued maintenance through the years. Each piece is hand-whittled and unique to the owner of that piece. There is nothing like it around.
The Statues are available through the Skowhegan Chamber of Commerce (we are temporarily located at 60 water street). Call or come by anytime to order yours.
Statues will be available for order at the Skowhegan Celebration of the Arts on September 13, 2014.
We have some on hand and if they need to be ordered the orders are delivered as recieved in a first come first served fashion . As they are hand whittled, there is no automatic production, but the wait is well worth it.
The 17-inch statue price $75
The 11-inch statue price $35
The 4-inch ornament price $10
Don’t miss your chance! To order call 474‑3621 or visit Cory at the Skowhegan Chamber in the municipal parking lot.
