An adult and child, made of pieces of wood, are carrying walking sticks as they wander the trail, and the adult turns to check on the child.

Charlie Brouwer and his wife Glenda live in Floyd County in the Blue Ridge Mountains of rural SW Virginia in a 100 year old farmhouse they have renovated. 9 acres of open fields and woods with 20 outdoor sculptures placed alongside a ½ mile walking trail, surround the house and studio. Charlie calls their place “Out There” not only because of its remote location at the end of a 1.5 mile gravel road, but also because he believes that art can point us towards thoughts, feelings, and meanings beyond our immediate experience.
