"Celebrate culture, learn about art and stuff your face at Mill Brook" by Jon Bodell

If you go to the September installment, which will be held Sept. 9 at 6 p.m., you'll meet Maine sculptor Antoinette "Toni" Prien Schultze.

Schultze is a trained opera singer, mother of four and passionate artist whose area of expertise is granite sculptures – quite fitting for an event in the Granite State. When she's not chiseling or jackhammering away at the stone, she's usually driving a trailer somewhere in the U.S. to deliver her pieces – she's gone to Florida and Chicago, among other places.

In fact, the piece she's standing with in the photo, called "Cultured Stone" (look, more culture!), will soon be headed to Josephine Sculpture Park in Kentucky.

She'll tell whoever shows up about her experiences as a sculptor, as well as her life in general. If you're lucky, Tarbell said, Schultze may even talk about helping deliver calves on her husband's farm. And again, it's a low-stress, relaxing time, not a preachy, stuffy kind of deal.

"Lenox Heritage & the Arts" by Joan Bruno

Antoinette P. Schultze has created a gorgeous piece called "Mother Totem", made of a mixture of light and dark colored granite, highlighted with two globs of brilliant yellow glass. The natural stone and reflective glass stand out against the backdrop of foliage, and the mature ferns, which grow around the rectangular base, give the piece a very organic feel. As I stood among the woodland gardens, I wondered what might Mrs. Wharton have felt about "Mother Totem"? I recalled a scene from the Age of Innocence in which Newland Archer walks through a drawing room "where Beaufort had had the audacity to hang 'Love Victorious', the much- discussed nude of Bouguereau" (in plain view). With these words in mind, I felt consoled, believing that, like the character that she had created, Edith Wharton would have approved of this bit of audacity, if only in rebellion against the stifling nature of the utterly conventional.

"Sculptures by Eliot Artist Selected for Hudson River Exhibit"

Two sculptures by Artist Antoinette Prien Schultze of Eliot, Maine were selected for inclusion in a sculptural exhibition, "Ossining in 3D: A 200 Year Celebration," situated along New York’s Hudson River. She was the only sculptor to have two works selected for the exhibit, which will continue through Oct. 27. A self-taught sculptor with a formal background in music, she has evolved from a figurative artist to a recognized abstract artist. Skokie Northshore Sculpture Park in Skokie, IL, said of the artist, "Antoinette’s sculptures are visually beautiful and provocative." Etc. . .

"A Village’s Bicentennial Celebrated in Sculpture"

A woman molded in bronze lounges by the library, legs outstretched, face turned toward the sky. Along the shore, a shard of crimson glass atop a towering column of rose-colored granite catches reflections from the Hudson River beyond. Sculpture is situated in outdoor locations in the historic downtown and waterfront districts. “We’ve put this super modern sculpture in front of our old architecture to take the village into its third century,” said Richard A. Leins, the village manager.

"Ossining in 3D: The Westchester Village’s Art Exhibit"

As I passed through the winding streets of the village of Ossining in the late-afternoon summer heat, I watched the shadows dance across multiple landmark properties – the public library, Trinity Church, and the massive, castle-like high school at the center of town. My eyes lingered on the intricacies of the town’s historical architecture while I searched for the sprawling mile-and-a-half long sculpture garden that I had come to see—a staple of Ossining in 3D, the village’s new, monumental art exhibit.
