Sculpting For Peace

Harriet Greene, Sculptress

Hours: by chance/by appointment/come meet the artists in their natural habitat

161 Fourth Street, (541) 482 – 3672


What do Harriet Greene, marble sculptress/printmaker and Martin Goldman, illustrator/photographer have in common? Find out at their working studio, 161 4th St. between B & C Streets on First Friday, September 2nd, 5:00 – 8:00 PM. Meet the artists and enjoy music and refreshments.


Harriet Greene:

“I believe the path to peace begins with the individual.” This summer and for a few years to come, I will be carving five blocks of marble with the letters P E A C E on one side and quotes from the world’s greatest advocates of peace on the other. From Gandhi, Tolstoy, Thomas Merton, Archbishop Desmond Tutu to the Dalai Lama, their words are there in stone forever.


Martin Goldman:

I have a series of modern day rodeo prints. When I came out with Star Spangled Cowboy a collector of mine said he had the perfect person to give it to. He was friends with Ronald Reagan and asked if I would mind if he presented President Reagan with the print. I said,” If President Reagan has to have art, it might as well be mine.” The White House called to verify the artist whether I was alive or dead. The President sent me a letter on White House stationery, which I hung beside the print. Now everyone wants the print with the letter.
