Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 16, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THI UTHBSIOGS HERAtD Saturday, 14, 1973 ivina Marble is queen to sculptor B) MAUREEN JAMIESON Family Editor A major work can take as long as two years to finish, according to Dr. Arvard T. Fairbanks, an acknowledged leader of contemporary Amer- ican sculptors. But with assistants to rough out the work and get it in rea- diness, a statue can be fin- ished in a month, said Dr. Fairbanks, who is in Leth- bridge for the annual educa- tion week program sponsored by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. "It doesn't make much he said, whether the medium "is bronze or marble. There is a challenge in marble, but also one in metal. "But marble is the queen of all materials. It is the most beautiful stone and has a translucency that gives it a flesh-like feeling." In sculpture, he said, "it takes a master to make char- acter. If you are the master of the materials, you can bring forth the character irom the materials. "I try to put music into it rhythm, motions, action. When a master can get a symphonic technique, it be- comes a masterpiece. "It isn't just wrinkles or skin or he said. "It's the spirit of a person the soul of a person. The features are how we translate this." Although Dr. Fairbanks has been trained "just as thor- oughly" in painting, "all my commissions have been in sculpting, so uiat's how I seem to specialize in sculp- he said.

I do the best "What do is not for the sculptor himself. It's for civi- lization and culture. In fact. I have set myself the task of helping to build a golden age of civilization compar- able to the other great golden ages high periods like the days of Greek art and the days of the Renaissance "Now we need a high par- iod to come forth in our day, with our achievements in the sciences, commercial and in- dustrial developments and advancements in learning Dr. Fairbanks explain e d that he is striving to inter- pret these achievements through sculpting. "I'm setting my goal to such a task." saicl the spe- cial consultant to the presi- dent of the University of North Dakota and the resi- dent sculptor on campus. Born in Provo, Utah, in 1837. Dr. Fairbanks first be- came interested in sculpting at the age of 12. and was awarded scholarships to study at the Art Students League in New York in 1910 and 1911. Wen he was 14 years old. his work was shown in the National Academy of De- sign. In 1913. he went to Paris and studied at the Ecole des Beaux Arts and the Ecole de la Grande Chauiniere. While there, he exhibited in the Grand Salon. The outbreak of First World War saw his return to the Uflited States, although he Izisr revisited Europe on a Guggenheim fellowship. Perhaps the most famous international work by Dr. Fail banks is the heroic, eight- ioct bronze statue of Lycur- gus, the Spartan law-giver. Dr. is the only non-Greek ever to be invited to erect a national monument in that country. family life by MAUREEN JAMIESON Famed sculptor Dr. Arvard T. Fairbanks, special consultant to the president of the University of North Dakota and resident sculptor on campus, with a head of Christ he put together in clay at the Leihbridge Community CoMege for the annual education week program sponsored by the Church of Jesus Christ of L after-day Saints. The centre parting in the hair of the Christ and the forked becrd were taken from what he termed "document- ed eviden'ce" in ancient Roman wntinas. Honored bv King Paul of Greece In appreciation of his great talent. King Paul of Greece personally presented him with the Knights of Thermo pylae Medal en the site of that ancient battlefield. The sculptor was also made an honorary citizen of Sparta. In North America, Dr. Fairbanks is best known for his many sculptures of Abra- ham Lincoln "It just happened I got to on Lincoln at a cer- tain he said, now I'm recognized as a great Lincoln scholar." Because of his work in the field of Lincolniana, Dr. Fairbanks has been accord- ed an honorary degree of Doctor of Fine Arts from Lin- coln College. Lincoln. Ill, and the Lincoln Diploma of Honor from the Lincoln Mem- orial University Among the many honors bestowed upon Dr. Fairbanks are a medal from the Con- gress of the United States commemorating the sesqui- centennial of Lincoln's birth- day, and another from the National Sculpture Society for distinguished service to American sculpture. HI? Canadian works include a bronze portrait bust of Mac- kenzie King made during the Second World War and a 20- inch model, cast in silver. honoring the silver anniver- sary of Mackenzie King's lea- dership of the Liberal Party. On that visit to Canada, Dr Fairbanks also designed the Medal of Courage, which was presented to Winston Church- it! by the prime ministers of the commonwealth. Dr. Fairbanks' latest work is an eight-foot statue in bronze and covered in gold leaf, which sits atop of LDS temple in Washington. H i s next commission is a Flor- ence Nightingale memorial for. the college of nursing at the University of Utah "But I would like to work on another project up here." he said.

At best, one ojt of 10 IJAINY weather doesn't really turn me on; but at least I can be happy for my gardening friends, who are now joyfully wallowing in the stuff, right up to the sec- ond joint on their moldy green thumbs. Everywhere I go these days, I run into people bub- bling over with enthusiasm about their plants and seed- lings. Cars, Watergate, even the neighbors' goings-on, have been shoved into the back- ground. Everyone I meet enthuses about the rain, argues the pros and cons of natural and chemical fertilizers, or tells me how to mix a particularly vile-smelling new compound that really works on creepy- crawlies of one kind or anoth- er. I firmly believe that at this moment I am the only per- son in town who does not re- gard tiie compost heap as more important than blood. One gal I know is working eight days a week to trans- form her back garden into the showplace of the western world. Already she has a few stringy green things, a spout- ing fountain, crazy pacing all over, and hanging baskets that give me a black eye when I forget to duck. I. on the other hand, am still trying to recover from last year's invasion of mari- golds. Actually, any time I feel the first faint in- terest in the garden, I rush into the house and pick a certain seed catalogue which I keep handy for just such an emergency. As I paw through the odd varieties of glorious tech- nicolor blooms, I get carried away. I decide to risk the pale pink squiggly stuff that grows nine feet high, jot down the number on the or- der form and then remember to read the description. Just my luck! It only grows sis inches inside the crater on Mount Popocatepetl. I make my next choice scientifically. Closing my eyes, I jab with a pin and land on sturdy-looking green stuff a rare species of something unpronounceable, used by penguins in the Ant- arctic to scratch fish scales from their flippers. Eventually I regain my senses, realize my limitations and close the catalogue. For a few moments I contemplate throwing it out, but in the end I pop it back in the book- case to protect myself from another gift of growing fever. As sanity returns, I re- mind myself I'm still trying to grow at all from a packet of snapdragon seeds I was given five years ago. At times like this, It com- forts me to think there must be some kind of magic formula attached to garden- ing say, 65 brand X seeds multiplied by Y fertilizer plus Z sunshine and AB drops of moisture, equal suc- cess. Then I can brush the whole business off as higher mathematics and refuse to get involved, as I do not have the abstract kind of brain necessary to become a genius. Actually, I'm ashamed to admit it, but I didn't cop out entirely this year. Spurred on by my friends' enthusiasm, I got carried away and sent for the first four items on page six of the seed catalogue. In due time, I received four bundles of sticks, a list of instructions, and the promise that they would eventually turn into four sp e c i m e n s which would arouse the envy and admira- tion of my cleverest garden- ing friends. I duly planted the four scruffy little bundles, follow- ed instructions, applied lib- eral amounts of w a t e r, and sat back and waited for the admiration and envy. It was a long wait, but something eventually A i d happen. Without any help, aid or assistance from me, last year's marigolds started to spring up and are now, thank goodness, hiding those ugly little bundles from the pitying gaze of passersby. (I like to think, though, all is not completely lost. With a bii of luck, someone will dig them up in about eight or nine million years and discover a rich deposit of velvety black Getting back to gardening. I know it isn't anything I do. it's just the way things are with me. Things that grow in the ground hate me. So I hope my gardening friends will understand why I do not plan to join them turn- ing over worms in their top soil this year, in the great, mosquito-laden outdoors. I shall be much too busy knitting hollyhocks out of a bundle of steel wool which I intend to plant in my front garden to break up the mo- notony of the marigolds that are hiding my dead sticks. entiJed women and film, be held July 4 and 5 at the Uni- versity of Calgary, university i theatre and Calgary Hall.
