Bending Sticks celebrates the 25-year career of internationally renowned environmental artist Patrick Dougherty, who has created hundreds of monumental, site-specific sculptures out of nothing more than saplings. The film follows the artist and his collaborators during a year of stick work and reveals Dougherty’s process, personal story and inspirations.

    I watched in amazement. I’ve never said so many WOWs in a 30-minute period. Patrick has an amazing talent. He has inspired me to try my hand at one of these sculptures. Of course, mine would have to be on a much, much smaller scale. Again, I say, “WOW.” Thank you for sharing.

    How fortunate I feel, to be able to experience this show. A snow storm sent me home from work early, Mother Nature, such a blessing. Back to the show. The last segment on the installation at a public garden in Washington DC. The man in charge of the gardens spoke of the ephemeral aspect of the artists work reflecting the ephemeral aspect of gardening. The show was so interesting on so many levels. Thank you. I will tell everyone who will listen. The show unearthed a part of me that I haven’t thought about in a while. Thanks, Nettie
