Stuck in Vermont: Winooski Sculptor Leslie Fry Celebrates Five Decades of Work With New Book 

Episode 644

Leslie Fry has been making art since she was a girl growing up in Stowe. By high school, she had started sculpting. Over the last five decades, she has been experimenting with a variety of mediums and art forms. Her otherworldly mythological beings are adorned with intricate details and always turned out in exquisite footwear.

Leslie has exhibited her work internationally, but many locals know her Pomerleau Neighborhood Park sphinx sculptures on Shelburne Road. A recent book with text by William Lipke chronicles the artist’s career over the years.

Eva met up with Leslie at her Winooski home and studio, where she also has a lush sculpture garden that's open by appointment. She worked on a plaster pedestal for her latest bird woman sculpture, “Arise,” which was recently cast in bronze.

Music: Unicorn Heads, “Orange Octopus”

Filming dates: 7/6/21 & 7/21/21
