    HOULTON — Sculptor Glen Hines will present a collection of his work Friday, Jan. 8 from 5-7 p.m. at Visions and Blue Moon Gallery. The show will continue through February, 19. The reception and show are free and open to the public. The hours for the show are Tuesday through Friday from noon to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10-2 p.m.
    Hines attended the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia and Haverford College. He moved to Hammond in 1974 to build a home for his family.  Several small art commissions came along and the first public piece was the statue of Samantha Smith in Augusta. The Law Enforcement Memorial in Augusta followed.  
    His studies of moose at the size of 2 feet led to a monumental moose for MBNA in Belfast. The Modern Art Foundry in New York promoted Glenn’s work for several restoration monuments around the city. A great supporter of the arts in Brewer promoted Glenn’s work for the Joshua Chamberlain Statue and the Underground Railroad Statue. Also, the Cole Transportation Museum in Bangor hired Glenn to sculpt the Vietnam Memorial for the Museum. Most recently. Hines placed a Moose at our park here in Houlton.
