Seadrift Studio in Sand City staged a retrospective of wood sculptures by the enigmatic Edmund Kara (1925-2001), “Big Sur’s most reclusive and legendary sculptor.” Kara began his creative life designing dresses for Lena Horne and costumes for Universal and Paramount studios. He quit all that and moved to Big Sur in 1962, where he turned to wood sculpting, carving Nepenthe’s “Phoenix” and a nude of Elizabeth Taylor for the film The Sandpiper. This show included illustrations and photos.
