ten of sixty sails



Sixty Sails is an outdoor art exhibit in Orillia with sculptures of eight-foot sail panels, made of lexan and supported on a hull of scrolled iron and a concrete pedestal.  I managed to see most of them on their last weekend at Thanksgiving.

Beautiful and creative. It ties a creative exhibit to the lake side setting.

How wonderful. I find that quite uplifting to see. Wish we had such well presented outdoor art around from time to time. The hulls are as artistic as the sails themselves, and the combination is heartwarming. Thanks for showing us.
