  The Swordfish Harpoon was installed in Menemsha 25 years ago this summer.   Jay built it to honor the fishermen (and women) of Menemsha as part of the 1994 Chilmark Tricentennial. 
     Two years after the Swordfish Harpooner was built the Town of Chilmark voted to keep it in Menemsha permanently.

     The polychrome steel Swinging Jenny has been a fixture at the Field Gallery in West Tisbury as well as people's lawns and gardens all over the US.

     At Jay's Sculpture Garden there many pieces almost no one has ever seen.

The Tree Fountain was created for Marianne in 1976

There are new pieces like the Deer Park

The small sculptures that are happy to share space with Marianne's plants

     Jay's Wild Island Sculpture Garden is a magical space located at 18 Wequobsque Road, Chilmark.  Wequobsque Road is located on the left off of State Road 1/2 mile past the center of Chilmark heading west towards Aquinnah.

     Come share the joy.   Save the date:  Saturday July 27, from 5 to 7 PM.
