2017 Sculpture Park

Post Card

Joseph Wheelwright (1948 – 2016)

“What is art? It’s the elevation of the human spirit and joy of the aesthetic.”

(Joseph Wheelwright – 2014, Boston Globe)

“In a post-modernist art world filled with cynical artifice and easy contrivance, Joe Wheelwright’s sculpture initially offers an obvious contrast: you can’t but marvel at the sheer physical effort involved in the making of each piece. Working in obdurate materials––stone, wood, bone, metal––Joe invariably, miraculously,  makes them sing, in sometimes profoundly resonant ways and also in ways beguilingly whimsical. Certainly this speaks to his technical mastery and vast set of skills. It also underscores an aesthetic vision that strikes such an exquisite chord, his unique and original figures inflected deeply with elements from Mother Nature and the art of the past. How marvelous it is to encounter this sculpture, as if discovering the work of some new, ancient civilization.”

(Walter Horak, Sculptor – Little Compton, May 9, 2017)

Joe Wheelwright graduated from Yale University with a BA in 1970.  He earned his Masters in Fine Arts from Rhode Island School of Design in 1975.  During his long career, Joe was a master carver of stones, trees, bones and other natural materials “…twig renditions of trees were succeeded by actual trees, and small stones ballooned into granite boulders that stretched five feet across…”*

Joe was instrumental in the founding of two important arts initiatives in 1992, the Boston Sculptors Gallery and in May of 2001 joined three partners in the transformation of Daloz Cleaners in the now Humphreys Street Studios in Dorchester. Joe was a participant in Four Corners first outdoor sculpture exhibit in 1993.

The exhibit runs June 1st – October 8th and is generously sponsored by:

The Cottage at Four Corners and with support from Steel Giraffe Rigging & Crane of Portsmouth, RI.

The James R. Weir Memorial Scholarship

Scholarship logo

The James R. Weir Memorial Scholarship is being offered to a resident of Tiverton or Little Compton who is a graduating high school senior. The Scholarship is being offered by the Tiverton Four Corners Merchants Association, a non-profit organization comprised of the business owners within the Tiverton Four Corners Historic Village. Our mission includes enhancing the community through sponsored family activities, to promote visual and performing arts and to explore and encourage greater participation in the arts throughout the community. The Association will award a scholarship to a high school graduating senior who wishes to further his or her education in either the Arts, Business or Preservation fields.

About James (Jim) Weir. James R. Weir, was an architect and preservationist, who passed away on November 16, 2013  He and his wife Rosalind have spent over 30 years restoring and renovating the 300-year-old village of Tiverton Four Corners, transforming it into a vibrant shopping area and community of the arts – an antithesis of the modern day strip mall. Jim and Roz also founded The Four Corners Arts Center which provides a venue for concerts, film, theatrical performances, exhibits, and arts education.

The project at The Village of Four Corners embodies the ideals Jim Weir so fervently supported: that the sustainability of a community, both physically and philosophically, is enhanced by the alliance between arts, business, and preservation.  This is accomplished through the hard work of committed individuals.
