305. Saturday Distractions, Lee Leuning & Sherri Treeby

“Saturday Distractions” by Lee Leuning & Sherri Treeby of South Dakota was the 2013 People’s Choice award winning sculpture. The figurative bronze features a young, lanky, active boy lost in the wonder of his book. The dog adds an extra level of life and humor, patiently awaiting a drip from the ice cream cone. Most importantly this sculpture tells a story and when you get the story you have some ownership of the piece. The commitment of Lee Leuning and Sherri Treeby is to produce art that is absolutely true to the subject and touches the viewer into the next millennium.
