“Gotta Practice First” is a bronze sculpture of a young girl playing violin, created by artistic duo Lee Leuning & Sherri Treeby.

“Our young tomboy is struggling with her violin practice,” the artists say, describing the work. “She is none too good, but mom won’t let her out of the house till she finishes. Her faithful basset hound hangs in there, though he covers his sensitive ears.”

“Gotta Practice First” has been leased through the Castlegar Sculpturewalk program by the RCAC and Tourism Rossland for 1 year.  May 2018
