Take our past trails to enjoy for the first time or experience once again the contemporary sculptures. As you visit the past trails look at the materials used to create the sculptures and you will notice that modern day sculptures can be created from just about any material you can imagine and others that will surprise you.
The Cloverdale Sculpture Trail, originally called the Cloverdale Annual Exhibit, was launched in 2003 and over the years has attracted talented, professional sculptors to exhibit in Cloverdale. Many of the sculptors have exhibited numerous time in the past 17 years.
“Thru the Years” will present to viewers the body of work of sculptors who have exhibit numerous times in Cloverdale. We have 8 sculptors in this category with the anticipation that sculptors who have exhibit once or twice will find themselves featured in “Thru the Years”.
We are starting with David Mudgett who first exhibited in 2005 and has a sculpture in the current 2020-2022 Trail. His Cloverdale body of works is shown by selecting his picture or the link.
