New sculpture donated to the library
 The staff of the Gardiner Public Library accepted a beautiful sculpture donated by Nicolas Genovese and made possible by a grant from the Gardiner Creativity Fund.  Nicolas created the Ice Man to remind the City’s occupants and visitors of the great ice industry that once thrived here on the Kennebec River in the late 1800s.  The statue depicts an ice harvester as one may have looked while working in that time period.  Genovese is a full-time IT Systems Administrator for the State of Maine and a self taught sculptor from Gardiner.  Born in Augusta and raised in Gardiner, he has always been a local resident with a creative mind.  From childhood to adulthood science fiction and fantasy stories have been his strongest influences; coupled with a vivid imagination. Throughout his years in college as a Computer Science student he began advancing into a self taught sculpting career. It was not until after graduation that he began working for large gaming companies creating prototype figures out of clay and wire, while using wine corks as handles.  Small scale sculptures have been the frontrunner in his creative achievements while only recently venturing into larger pieces. The Ice Man sculpture is the first large character outside of 28mm scale tabletop miniatures that the artist has created.  The statue is on display in the Hazzard Reading Room located at the Gardiner Public Library.  The artist’s portfolio may be viewed online at:
