Abe Waterman works on a sand sculpture in Fort Myers, Florida.
While Islanders curse the surprise nature of Wednesday’s winter storm, Island sculptor Abe Waterman is basking in the warmth of a major win.
It ran Nov. 22 to Dec. 1 on the beach in front of Wyndham Garden hotel, formerly the Holiday Inn at Fort Myers Beach, Florida.
The web site of the host organization lists Radluff’s hometown as Santa Cruz, Calif. while Waterman hails from Caledonia, P.E.I.
Waterman also placed second in the individual sculptor division for a work he titled The Heist, which also won the Sculptors' Choice award.
He is well known on the Island, including his guitar performances with his dad Gary in the Waterman Blues Band but mostly for creating sculptures at such places as the Charlottetown Jack Frost festival, the 2007 SandLand display on the city’s waterfront, and at events across the Island in the summer like the 2011 P.E.I. Lighthouse Treasures Festival and for the past two years at Old Home Week.
