Take a Walk on the Wild Side - Cary Visual Art's Annual Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition
Word on the street is there's some great controversial art scattered around the heart of Cary, NC. Cary Visual Art, with support of the Town of Cary, is pleased to present the 6th Annual 2013 Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition. The exhibition was juried by Cheryl Stewart of Greensboro, an expert and consultant in public art, who chose twelve artists among numerous applications from across the country to display their sculpture in downtown Cary from August 9th through June 20, 2014.
So put on your walking shoes, grab a map and hunt down these 12 great sculptures that some of you will love and others will love to hate. Public sculpture brings a town together through discussion, laughter and even disagreement. Sculptures create talking points that connect people and places which in turn make art in public places more meaningful and memorable. What a wonderful way to celebrate the community of Cary and the magic of public art.
Best in Show - Paul Hill's Natural Embrace made of steel, wood and fused glass. The piece is a whimsical yet other-worldly depiction of the Venus Flytrap, an endangered species in North Carolina. The artist's name for the piece Natural Embrace offers the viewer a humorous outlook on the rather intimidating plant. This piece stretches to the sun with glorious reflections may be found at the Purple Polka Dot retail store on Academy Street in Downtown Cary.
Back from Kyoto - One of artist, Wayne Trapp's favorite places in Japan is Kyoto. He's taken the Japanese character for Kyoto and made it into a three dimensional sculpture. The simplicity and complexity of the form relates to that of a haiku. This piece is found at the US Postal Service on Academy Street.
Colorful - This is Jonathan Bowling's most recent horse. Bowling has been working on a series of steel horses, which focus on interior and negative space as much as on contours and surface. With this horse, he's focused on pattern and color as well. Each horse is a series of abstract sculptures which are combined to form the armature for the whole. The materials used are often from the turn of the last century, which he feels is appropriate for depicting an animal so intertwined with our agrarian past. Re-purposed steel provides a sound structure which allows him to work on a scale that lends itself to public spaces. Colorful can be found on the corner of Academy and Park Street.
Emperor's New Clothes - Jonathan W. Hils created a bulbous cloud or cell form that fluctuates between whole and parts. Not completely transparent, nor completely present, the work alludes to an unfixed understanding of solidity, space, light and transformation. You may view this sculpture at the Cary Town Hall on North Academy Street.
On the Other Side - Artist, Wayne Vaughn created On the Other Side as a study in perspective. Rooted in angst, the piece transformed in the process of making it to a celebration of joy. This is also on the grounds of Cary Town Hall on North Academy Street.
Now you've got lots to talk about, argue about or agree to disagree... But you've got to go see them if you want to form any kind of opinion!
For more information on all 12 sculptures - Visit the 2013 CVA Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition website. Maps are provided online and at the Cary Arts Center and Page Walker Museum. A link to for listening to the CVA Audio Tour Guide is also provided online. Click Here for Audio.
Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition will be on display until June 30, 2014.

Blame it on the French: Cocktail historians generally agree that was conceived at the famed Harry's New York Bar in Paris. The bartender, Pete Patriot, brought the drink to the NYC Saint Regis Hotel after prohibition and named it the Red Snapper. It became the Bloody Mary with the addition of Tabasco Sauce from Louisiana.
Or Blame it on a Woman: The term "Bloody Mary" generally refers to the historical figure, Queen Mary I of England. Other women thought to have the drink named after them include actress Mary Pickford and a waitress aptly named Mary who worked in the Chicago bar, the Bucket of Blood. Today, most bartenders have their own spin on the spices included in the mix, but most often the Bloody Mary is still served with a celery stalk over ice with a mix of vodka and tomato juice.
The New York School of Bartending Bloody Mary Recipe:
- 1 oz. to 1½ oz. (30-45 ml) vodka in a highball glass filled with ice
- Fill glass with tomato juice
- 1 dash celery salt
- 1 dash ground black pepper
- 1 dash Tabasco®
- 2-4 dashes of Lea & Perrin's® Worcestershire® sauce
- 1/8 tsp. horseradish (pure, never creamed)
- Dash of lemon or lime juice
- Garnish with celery stalk.

The Beltline Buzz items are selected by our editors. No one can pay to be featured on The Beltline Buzz.. That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such. Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of The Beltline Buzz. Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way. So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about.
That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors. You'll recognize them from the subject line: "The Beltline Buzz Dedicated E-mail." Yes, these are paid for. And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone. Not for any amount of money.
We hope that you continue to enjoy your Beltline Buzz. We look forward to delivering it.
