Artwork provides lasting memories, family heirlooms, for moms, dads, grads



INCLINE VILLAGE — With one of the busiest seasons of celebration just around the corner, it’s time to think about unique and appropriate gifts for moms, dads, grads and those tying the knot this upcoming summer.  When everyone is looking harder and smarter for “just the right gift,” artist June Towill Brown of J.T. Brown Sculptures suggests consumers take a look at artwork – sculptures in particular – as a smart option for the serious shopper.  “Gift giving can be one of the most enjoyable ways to spend, and invest, your money,” she noted. “And when the gift provides a direct emotional connection from the giver to the recipient, the value of the gift can truly be priceless.”

With Mother’s Day around the corner on May 9th, Brown provided further insight. “My Next Generation sculpture is a bust of a mare and her foal.  Bloodline depicts the circle of life; just like a mother’s love and the importance of affection and guidance, sculptured artwork has proven itself through time.” Through her Whispering Winds artistry, Brown portrays an Indian mother carrying her papoose and her husband’s eagle feather for bravery in battle.

Everything that Brown creates tells a story in a ‘Series of Three’ that often depict this ‘circle of life’ approach.  “Sculptures – no matter what the medium – are timeless and nearly indestructible pieces of art that will remain in your family for many generations to come.”

Brown also suggested her Lone Eagle Feather series as option for the graduate or special gift. This ‘Series of Three’ depicts the passing of the eagle feather for bravery from Lone Eagle’s medicine man, to her warrior and finally to herself – holding her husband’s eagle feather for courage in battle.  “Without question, the ‘Series of Three’ is the hallmark of my career,” noted Brown.

Why would one purchase a sculpture? While toys and technology come and go, Brown believes an investment in art – as an heirloom – is much more personal, and emotional. “An engaging work can provide its owner with a lifetime of visual pleasure and lifelong memories.”
