Lee Leuning & Sherri Treeby,
Media: Bronze Sale Price: $30,000
Lee Leuning and Sherri Treeby formed the art studio Bad River Artworks after cooperating on several sculpture projects while attending Northern State University in the late 80’s. Their “continuous critique” approach to sculpture delivers high realism to their “Americana” sculptures. Besides their national market they have placed over 70 public, life-sized sculptures making them one of South Dakota’s most prolific bronze sculptors.
The realism, and emotions it evokes, is evident in “Hey, Mary Lou!” whose story goes like this: “Our third string hero is getting his first shot at glory as he sprints along the sideline. His worn out and patched uniform are clues to his rookie status. His emerging hormones have helped divert his attentions to the side lines and Cheerleader, Mary Lou.” Your imagination can fill in the rest.
