Jan Zach sculpture...

 “Marching Women” an extraordinary sculpture by Jan Zach, was welcomed to it’s new home today at Clackamas Community College. Kate Simmons, Gallery Curator and sculptor in her own right, facilitated the acquisition of the piece for the campus. Olinka Broadfoot spoke about her mentor and friend, Jan Zach, and how his support furthered her career as a sculptor. 

The sculpture is constructed of multiples of like shapes. One alone is not remarkable. Together they are formidable. It’s amazing how strong we become when we link arms and encourage each other. 

Carving stone

January 1991
The happiest I’ve ever been with an art project. Carving stone. The sculpture was later juried into a show and I still have this first effort. More to come.
