Stark's yard art.

Yard Artist Glenn Stark

Stopped by to look at the art in the yard of wood carving artist Glenn Stark, and before we knew it Mrs. Stark came out and gave us a tour of the carvings and told us the story of most of them. We were then invited in to meet the artist himself and see many more wonderful artwork.

Wonderful people and a fascinating collection of his life's work. Stop if you can, it was an experience for sure, and I think we made his day just by stopping by!

Yard Artist Glenn Stark

Glenn Stark, now in his 90s, created a humorous assemblage of wood carved and concrete-sculpted figures all over his yard. The statues are mostly painted, and of varying sizes and subjects -- fish dangle from a tree, there's a Gryphon, a woman on horseback (Calamity Jane), an angel playing a harp, a dinosaur, Indians, totem poles, and more. A "Hagar the Horrible" concrete Viking holds the Stark mailbox.

Glenn has plenty of his creations indoors, so call ahead for an appointment and he may show you his stuff.
