A sculpture recently acquired by the Club by William McElcheran. Calgarians and visitors to Calgary will recognize his work from the famous Stephen Avenue Sculpture "The Conversation".

I was over at Masters Gallery to photograph it but while I was there saw this amazing sculpture *instant <3*

Interesting statue that first one....very plain so to speak and not overly detailed. As soon as I saw it I was reminded of something I have seen before....but I just can't place it. Maybe my kids are right about early onset dementia:D

I know what you mean. It reminded me of something as well which I can't recall. Maybe we are suffering from the same dementia.
As far as the statue (and the picture) it does have that look of a businessman hurrying to to work because he is late for a meeting.

You have probably seen his work and not realized it:
