The name, Third Leg, is inspired by the riddle of Oedipus and the Sphinx:
What goes on four legs in the morning, on two legs at noon, and on three legs in the evening?
The solution: A human, who crawls on all fours as a baby, walks on two legs as an adult, and walks with a cane in old age.
Half our sticks are sold to collectors and the other half to users.
Collectors tend to buy groupings to display on walls. Some collect theme based sticks such as birds or
Florida imagery while others prefer a more random variety.
All our sticks are constructed of hard maple, painted with the finest acrylics,
and varnished or waxed. Each cane or walking stick we create is a work of art. Those who use them
for support, consider them fabulous fashion statements. Each stick has its own personality that
creates a special identity for the user/owner. Should you like to commision an item contact us.
Available canes can be purchased via paypal through this site.
Going Solo And Tandem
Selected works by Marilyn Keating and Debra Sachs
Featuring observations and navigations of our daily environment.
College Art Gallery 9/3/2014-11/9/2014
We live and work in Gloucester City, NJ, a port town by the Walt Whitman Bridge on the east side of the Delaware River. Here industry once thrived and recovery never quite happened. We also share a passion for the natural world and a love of the South Jersey Pinelands. Paddling its’ rivers is a frequent year round activity that continually informs our art making. We each find that what lays between our once industrial home and the southern NJ shorelines is a wealth of resources that helps keep us creating reflections of our world, both individually and together.
“Going Solo and Tandem” exhibits artworks that we created both solo and jointly. It includes selections, from small to large, produced recently and up to 25 years ago. Works chosen reflect the spirit of our partnership, general influences, and mutual interest in our industrial/natural South Jersey world. The Stockton College Gallery is a gorgeous space and we are approaching it like a playground for artists. We are filling the space with objects recovered from the attic and stripped off walls. The image on our announcement combines several small sculptures grouped together in a “landscape” to capture a sense of what we will be exhibiting.
We hope you can join us at the opening reception on Saturday September 20 from 5-7pm. The gallery is located in the Performing Arts Building, K/L wing. Parking is in lots 4-7. The campus is beautiful. The area is close to Atlantic City and the seashore. Nearby is the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife refuge, one of our favorite places and a must visit for bird lovers.
