A sculpture Russell Day once kept on his back deck now has a place of honor in Everett Community College’s Whitehorse Hall.  Day, a 103-year-old former Everett Community College art instructor, joined more than 75 people May 27 in Whitehorse Hall to celebrate the installation of his untitled 238-pound Blenko glass and concrete sculpture. The sculpture, created by Day in 1955 and donated to the college in 2015, was painstakingly restored by retired EvCC art instructor Lowell Hanson and installed with the assistance of retired photography instructor Lloyd Weller, 3D design instructor Julie Berger and studio arts technician Miles Labitzke.

See Snohomish artist Paul Vexler’s abstract wood sculptures on display Feb. 16-March 5 at Everett Community College’s Russell Day Gallery. The exhibit includes several large sculptures that stand 5 to 8 feet tall and sketches showing Vexler’s design process. He often creates new tools and methods for his sculptures. “I want people to approach my work and feel compelled to walk around it and view it from different angles. I want them to walk around it two or three times because the work is helping them to learn to see things that they missed the first time. And most of all, I want them to experience the pleasure of seeing something beautiful,” Vexler said.
