Purchase Georgia gerber bronze SCULPTURES

Gallery Mack

​Barbara Mack, one of SAMA's original board members and owner of Gallery Mack, asked renowned sculptor, Georgia Gerber, if she would create a piece or two to help raise funds for SAMA.  The result was the three elegant sculptures shown above, an otter, quail and fox, which are available for purchase from Gallery Mack.  All proceeds are donated to SAMA to support its work.

Sculptures can be purchased in person at Gallery Mack
