In the late spring this year, the Uxbridge Studio Tour lost one of our favourite artists.
Gerd Untermann passed away after living with cancer for some time. You will know him as the warm and exuberant sculptor, living south of the township near Claremont.
His large-scale figurative sculptures, often carved from a single block of wood, have a smooth beauty and a joy in the material.
He was particularly fond of carving bears and bear cubs, and had a delight for carving the many beautiful women among his friends and acquaintances.
We will miss his warm presence in our community of artists.
