Lance Dooley | How I’m bringing E.T. Pybus back to life

As spring transitioned into June, I was anxious to begin adding clay to the metallic armature that would become the sculpture of E.T. Pybus, the legendary man who constructed the building that is now the Pybus Public Market on the Wenatchee riverfront. The contractors receded in numbers and were replaced by market goers pushing strollers and curious onlookers asking questions about the process.

This fell in line with the strategy laid out by Joann Walker, Jan Cooke Mack and myself. It was our vision to allow the Wenatchee populous to enter the room at all hours and see firsthand how a seven-foot sculpture is made. As the months passed by, I slowly met thousands of new faces showing enthusiasm and interest in the sculpture project and the market. It is difficult for a visual artist to expose oneself for so long to random comments, but I knew it was worth it when parents hoisted their children up on the sculpting platform for a photo opportunity. I recall meeting established artists when I was a child and that experience enriched my life and inspired me as an artist, as I hope it will for the children who stood in front of the sculpture here.
