WISCASSET — A retrospective of the work of Virginia S. Brun will open at Maine Art Galleryt, 15 Warren St., on Friday, June 23, with a reception from 5 to 8 p.m. The show will run weekends from noon to 4 p.m.through Sunday, July 16.

Brun died April 3 at the age of 100 in her Wiscasset home. Until a few months before her death, she was found daily in her studio sculpting intricately wrought figures in motion made of wire and plaster and then cast in bronze. Some of her figures were fashioned into larger versions for outdoor display by her friend and neighbor Bryan Buck, a local welder. Their close collaboration over the years resulted in wonderful life-size sculptures of whimsical birds, angels and frogs, and even trellises, some of which can be seen in mid-coast gardens.
