Sculptor T Barney Celebrates
30 Years of Sculpting Stone

A celebration of T Barny's 30th Year of Sculpture and a benefit for the Alliance Medical Center was held on September 10 from 5:00-9:00pm at the T Barny Gallery & Sculpture Gardens in the beautiful Alexander Valley located at 4370 Pine Flat Road, Healdsburg, CA.

Tickets were $30 each. Patrons enjoyed a lively evening of outstanding food from ZIN Restaurant, music by The Linda Ferro Band plus an amusing silent auction filled with 24 unusual items linked to T Barny, Sculpture & Health. In addition, six spectacular examples of T Barny's sculpture were be sold in a live auction to lucky attendees!

Why Alliance Medical Center? One of the blessings of a small, rural community is the opportunity to serve others. T Barny is a member of the board of directors of the Geyserville Fire Protection District and previously served as a volunteer firefighter.

His wife and partner, Melinda, has recently undergone extensive treatment for cancer. These experiences have given T Barny an appreciation for the value of good medical care, including the special care Alliance Medical Center provides to the working poor in that community. "If we can't keep ourselves healthy, we can't give back to our community. Thirty years of sculpting stone has taken a toll on my body and I'm lucky to have access to healthcare so I can keep carving. Others are not so lucky. I'm proud to support Alliance Medical Center."

Why T Barny? For three decades, sculptor T Barny has created works of art that invite you to join him in a world of flowing stone. Under his hand, massive blocks of stone are transformed into graceful mobius curves that seem to defy gravity and reflect the magic and wonder in our world.

T Barny returned to California in 1980 after graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design, and established his Pine Flat studio in 1986. T Barny owes his 30 years of sculpting success to a unique combination of marketing skills, exacting craftsmanship, and an intense curiosity that drives him to transform stone into art.

He has gained recognition by art collectors that span the globe and he is noted as a "wise investment." T Barny has shown in over 300 group and solo exhibitions and in over 80 galleries worldwide. The T30 Event was also the Release Party for T Barny's "Three Decades of Excellence" Coffee Table Book written by Ray Holley.
