Maine artist and sculptor Bernard Langlais

Share: 

Local Girl by Bernard LanglaisThere's a new art trail in Maine this summer.

Several nonprofits and businesses have been gifted wood sculptures and reliefs made by the late Cushing sculptor Bernard (Blackie) Langlais.

Langlais died in 1977 at the age of 58.

When his wife, Helen Friend Langlais, died in 2010, the entirety of the Langlais estate was willed to Colby College.

Colby has partnered with the Kohler Foundation and the Georges River Land Trust to preserve and display Langlais’ creations.

A portion of this effort is the distribution of select pieces to public, nonprofit organizations in Maine and throughout the country.
