    PORTSMOUTH – The sculpture of Lenny Novak done in natural materials will be on exhibit for the month of June at the Robert Lincoln Levy Gallery.
     
    Novak is both Abenaqui and Algonquin. His work is sculpture done in natural materials with the exception of the synthetic sinew he uses for its length due to the complexity of his web for dreamcatchers. 
     
    These dreamcatchers are based on the Objewa in most aspects, but he is the only person known in the world that does his Lonewolf Web. Once you view his work, you will always recognize it for its uniqueness.
     
    The show titled, “Super Natural Dreams,” uses antlers, horns, burl, minerals and brass.
     
    Novak’s work has been exhibited in the Abbe Museum in Bar Harbor, Maine; the Mount Kearsage Museum in Warner, New Hampshire; and the Great Plains Museum in Lincoln, Nebraska. A piece was donated to the Cherokee Museum in Dahlonega, Georgia.
     
    His work has been featured in several galleries in Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts and gifted to state officials as thank-you gifts for their efforts in recognizing the Wabanaki Nation in Vermont.
