Piece on loan in UTTC gallery
1 October 2013

WILD RIDE: President David M. Gipp, left, and UTTC Art Gallery Curator Jesse Clairmont, center, accepted the loan of a carved horse-head July 26 from Fintan Dooley of Milwaukee, WI. Friends will remember Dooley as a lawyer, formerly in Bismarck, whose artistic talent happens to emerge in sculpture. This piece captures a moment when, as a young man, he was aboard a spirited buffalo runner horse. Dooley sculpted the wild-eyed features of the mare when the two skidded and tumbled on a patch of ice, and rebounded off corral boards. "Didn't hurt herself, and when we got up, I got back on her and we were friends," he says telling the story of the memorable event. Visitation at the gallery can be arranged by calling 701-255-3285.
