    Name: Governor Langdon House host an Artist Panel Discussion
    Date: July 6, 2017
    Time: 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM EDT
    Event Description:
    Historic New England presents a panel discussion with featured artists from the current exhibition, Sea to Shore: Sculpture Inspired by the New England Seacoast on Thursday, July 6 at 5:30 p.m. at Governor John Langdon House, 143 Pleasant Street in Portsmouth. The exhibition will be open for viewing from 5-5:30 p.m., and immediately following the program from 6:30-7:00 p.m. The panel will feature sculptors Susan Neet Goodwin, Lindley and Jeff Briggs, and Jeffrey Cooper. Susan Neet Goodwin has traveled extensively and many of her sculptures focus on people from the far corners of the world including Senegal, Australia, and Mexico. In this exhibit, her subjects are closer to home — an Eastport Cannery Worker in Maine and a Pastry Chef. Husband and wife Jeff and Lindley Briggs work collaboratively and on their own sculptures. Jeff created the animals for The Greenway Carousel on the Rose F. Kennedy Greenway in Boston. Jeff’s Lobster is a replica of the one that he created for the Carousel. Lindley’s Sirena & Consorts in a Sea of Shells and Colossal Shell Goddess evoke the beauty of women and our connection to the sea. Jeffrey Cooper’s interests lie in the healing beauty of the natural world. His sculpture Fragrant Flow is also a magnificently carved bench for relaxing and meditating. Admission to the panel presentation is $5. Members of Historic New England and New England Sculptors Association are free. Call 603-436-3205 to register or visit www.historicnewengland.org.
