Sculptor Ken Herlihy - photographs by John Guthrie

Kenneth Herlihy is a sculptor living in Heron Point, Chestertown, Maryland. He is admired for his life-size image of an Oysterman in action, Capt. Stanley Vansant, which was placed in Rock Hall in 1995. He is also well-known for the life-sized bronze of Chestertown baseball player Switch Nicholson, and many other accomplishments. Ken was exceptional in the sense that he worked both marble and bronze, which is rare.

John Guthrie photographed 20 of Ken's sculptures in Ken's garden near Georgetown and put together this slideshow. The sculptures are all named by Ken and his wife Pat.

RiverArts appreciates John's work in sharing this amazing collection with our community, and we're honored to highlight Ken's stunning sculptures.
