Work of local sculptor on display at Moore Free Library

NEWFANE — Larry Simons' “Sculpture and Assemblages” is on display this month at the Crowell Gallery of the Moore Free Library, 23 West St.

Simons specializes in assemblages of found wood and metal objects. The wood Simons uses is both natural, such as driftwood, or comes his way from its previous life as part of a building, tool, piece of furniture, or other consumer object.

He created his first sculptures in 1965, from leather scraps he picked up at a sandal shop where he worked on Cape Cod. In his work since, he describes himself as “a recycler by nature.”
