Harvest Hayday features local residents’ works

Stoneware sculptures by Allan Weaver and “Gifts From a Muse” by Lane Schroeder will be featured at the Oct. 27 Harvest Hayday at the Elizabethan Gardens in Manteo.
The stoneware sculptures represent the nine Muses of Greek mythology. “Gifts From a Muse” is a book of poetry.
Weaver and Schroeder, friends and neighbors in the Cypress Landing community east of Chocowinity, were amazed when they discovered they were working on projects involving the Muses. Weaver’s sculpture of Erato, the muse of romantic poetry, serves as the cover of Schroeder’s book.
During the golden age of Greece, the individual Muses were called upon to inspire the creative processes of artists, poets, scientists and others. Weaver’s interpretation of these mythological sisters gives a more personal and contemporary representation to their individual personalities, according to a news release.
Weaver is a member of The International Sculpture Center. Schroeder is a member of The Pamlico Writers Group.
