June LaCombe is an independent arts consultant specializing in sculpture in the New England region. She curates and sites exhibitions of sculpture in Maine and oversees sales, delivery, siting, and installations for clients throughout the country. Her outdoor shows feature sculpture suited for gardens and landscapes in a variety of mediums including granite, bronze, wood, stoneware, and steel. Interior sculpture is included in exhibitions at Hawk Ridge Farm and shown in her country home.
Exhibition themes have included: Art and the Landscape, In Celebration of Place, Focal Point, The Heart of Matter, Sculpture for this Animate Earth, and Touchstones: Sculpture Participating with Place. She has sited sculpture exhibitions in sanctuaries and environmental studies centers, international corporate offices and grounds, and private estates, and has invited collectors to her home to view gardens and rooms designed for sculpture.
June LaCombe has also acted as guest curator for galleries and sculpture courts in Maine including, The Barn Gallery, Turtle Gallery, Greenhut Gallery, Caldbeck Gallery and the Blum Gallery. June’s shows demonstrate both the careful placement of sculpture in a variety of settings and the strength and quality of sculpture being created in our region. She states, “My goal is to find the right piece of sculpture for the setting so that both will resonate in new ways. Sculpture can help us explore our relationship with our environment and give years of contemplative pleasure.”
“Buying original art supports the creative economy; living with art nurtures our soul and inspires our own creative spirit.” JL
