Jay Laber, internationally collected sculptor, will be unveiling his newest work, "Finds His Spot" at this month's First Friday celebration in Stevensville. The Sacajawea Gallery at 301 Main Street will be bringing this and some of Laber's other recent works to be displayed for one night only, January 6, from 6 to 9 p.m. Other works, recently displayed in Washington, D.C., will also be on hand, along with the Stevensville Art and Sculpture Society's purchase, "Two Left Feet Dancing Free." Don't miss this opportunity to see several of Laber's sculptures along with this newest very moving work depicting a tethered warrior in a sphere of dynamic movement constructed from resurrected automobile parts.
