Flying Dreams: Into the Light: New Work in Glass and Metal by Lee Proctor

Artist, Lee Proctor is a local treasure who lives and works in Bigfork. Proctor has been creating glass and forged metal works for more than 25 years. Proctor s newest and most ambitious work will be on view at the Bigfork Art & Cultural Center (BACC) from July 28th to August 18th.

Flying Dreams: Into the Light explores Proctor s fascination with flight, winged creatures, and the ideas they represent: freedom, inspiration, courage, escape, and transcendence. The exhibit celebrates birds as spirit totems for our time with”winged creatures connected to the sky, helping us to reach a heightened state of awareness and peace.

The exhibition features interactive components for visitor participation. Proctor has created a special entry arch that will be installed outside BACC. The exhibit will also feature a special installation inspired by Bowerbirds,known for their unique courtship behavior. To attract a mate, males build a structure with an array of materials and brightly colored objects.

Proctor began his artistic pursuits creating works in metal: sculptures, architectural elements, and lighting installations. Proctor attended the esteemed Pilchuck Glass School to learn the art of glassmaking. Proctor s Bigfork studio is a state-of-the-art glass blowing and casting facility, allowing for limitless possibilities in glass, metal, sculpture, and architectural works.

Proctor's commissions range from small sculptural pieces to large-scale architectural works: railings, lighting, tables, and sculpture. Proctor is gifted at listening to and working closely with clients to realize their vision for commissions. On making art, Proctor says: "I have always treasured the mystery, the unspoken, unexplainable aspect involved in the creative process."
