Barbara Dolan-Wilkinson, who lives and works in Mckinleyville, California is on site at The Benini Sculpture Ranch, creating - along with her husband Allen and her best friend and assistant, Anita Jones -
strings2, an installation that is coming alive with strings radiating from Texas oaks, creating diaphanous
pathways between the landscape of the trees, the skies above and the radiating patterns of multiple strings in harmonious dialogue.
"I take inspiration from nature. My work is organic in substance, yet my sculpture is not about anything. It is rather a study of form, light and shadow, the relationship of parts created space and color," Dolan-Wilkinson said.

Following George Smith's talk about the history of percussion and his explanation of the process of
building Orishic Djembe, participants walked to the pond area where they drummed on
George's massive sculpture as other drummers accompanied them with their own drums.
Orishic Djembe required eight months to build, and weighs 5000 pounds.
