“The trio of pieces making up “Circus Series #7” by Gerald Stoner, installed in front of Lake Champlain Chocolates, seems to defy gravity. Composed of welded, weathered steel, each stands about nine feet tall. Stoner’s compositions gracefully balance geometric shapes, with cut beams perched on thinner forms and designs ground into the rusty surfaces… “Seven Days Art Review: South End Art Hop Outdoor Sculpture, Burlington, VT Marc Awodey [09.07.11]
