It isn’t often that an original Dusenbury sculpture is made available at auction. On Friday and Saturday, Sept. 9 – 10, at the Pacolet Area Conservancy (PAC) benefit September Spectacular Horse Show at Harmon Field, the “PAC Buffalo” created by world class local artist Philip Dusenbury will headline the silent auction.
Held in the Harmon Field Cabin from 1 p.m. on Friday until 7 p.m. Saturday, the silent auction will feature such items as spa treatments, equine chiropractic services, glorious wine baskets, jewelery, art and much more.
The “PAC Buffalo,” which PAC had commissioned as a symbol of how natural resources can diminish in a short period of time, will be offered with a minimum bid of $2,500. The artist, whose work is owned and exhibited throughout the United States (exercise guru Richard Simmons is a collector), is well known for developing his unique sculptural style and technique.
“We hope that someone special will acquire the ‘PAC Buffalo,’” says PAC Executive Director Sally Walker. “It is both a beautiful work of art and a reminder of how important it is to value our natural resources.”
The September Spectacular Horse Show will be held at Harmon Field Friday through Sunday. PAC will host a Saturday evening derby dinner in conjunction with the Vic Bailey Subaru Hunter Derby event. Tickets for the dinner may be purchased ahead of time at PAC, or at the horse show office.
Other horse show sponsors include the Gold Exchange in Lynn, and Little Mountain Farm Supply. For further information, contact PAC at 828-859-5060.
