Long Description:
"THE ROWER"
Artist: Morgan MacDonald
A GIFT TO THE CITIZENS OF ST. JOHN'S
FROM
ELINOR GILL RATCLIFFE
WITH SUPPORT FORM THE CITY OF ST. JOHN'S
2005

"The Rower" is Morgan's first public monument, a tribute to the historic and annual regatta which has become a civic celebration every August. I have also included photographs of Morgan's sculpture on George Street, "A Time" (also in bronze). "A Time" is the largest statue cast in Newfoundland. Due to the busy surroundings, "A Time" is difficult to photograph.
