Our friend, Marilyn, passed away in Bandera, Texas on April 26, 2021. As she was, for many years, an integral part of The Esther Benedict Gallery, the Sculpture Walk surrounding the Gallery has been renamed in her honor.

Sheppy Jude of Kentucky had an old antique, wooden mantle on her sun porch. She thought it would be great to have a scene from their farm mounted inside the opening of the mantle. Sheppy contacted Esther with the measurements and several photos of her farm down by the stream. She particularly wanted a deer and a redtail hawk to be a part of the scene. Esther designed and sent Sheppy a few ‘mock-ups,’ and once the design was approved, the piece was cut and finished. This image shows how the piece looks inside the old wooden mantle.

“Custom work is the most exciting for me, as it’s the ability to make people’s dreams come true.” Esther Benedict
