He learned, early on, that working from life, with children posing, wasn't for him. "Children wiggle too much," he said. "It's better to think a long time about the situation I want to depict, ga to the park and observe children as they walk, talk, run and play, take snapshots and then make sketches." He constructs the model in Sculpt-Metal on aluminum wire armatures and this may call for much changing and reworking before it's ready for casting in bronze.

New York Foundry He will continue to send his work to the New York foundry where he has had all his bronze-casting done in the past. Casting, he said,' is a very particular process.

Beene Bazaar does it in red and white with crafted flowed ' . ered belt. By JACKIE WHITE TENNESSEAN Fashion Editor - IN Cinderella's day, it took only a zap of a magic wand and she was ready for a grand entrance at the ball. Today, if a girl is depending on a fairy godmother for a gown, here's hoping her wizard is tuned in- to the fashion scene. ', How dreadful if she should whomp up, say, a swii'ly beaded chiffon dress which is frankly a ho-hum. Or what if she comes up with a peasant frock that says last year alongside the new enchanting looks for party girls. Frank M. Avent, later taught him in painting and drawing, In New York he studied at the New School. Although Beesley's figures are' a little attenuated, they are anatomically correct, Pointing out a figure of a little girl who kneels to pick wildflowers, he said, "You have to know that when thigh and calf are pressed together like that to support the body weight, one muscle must dominate another and which way it curves. You have to know what happens at the elbow when the arm is extended like that or, in the case of the "Soloist," how the flat-tening on the Inside of the arm occurs." Beesley's "children" were exhibited at the Swan Ball at Cheekwood last year ($10,000 worth were sold the night of the ball), are offered in New York at Burrell Gallery and in Hopkinsville at Gordon Cayce's. They are made in editions limited to eight, with the mold then being destroyed. He has been asked to exhibit again this year at the Swan Ball and will show eight of his charming children's sculptures, of which three are newly completed works not yet displayed, here and all of which will remain on view through June. One is a fishing boy, in which the young angler sits, with feet dangling as if on a creekbank, and puts a worm on a hook. One is the little girl picking wildflowers, and the third, a fountain piece called "The Shower," depicts a pony-tailed little girl holding a watering can above her head. Copper tubing, intricately engineered, is threaded inside the body and arm and into the watering can. Connected with a recirculating pump the water flows through and gives the child a self-administered shower. Beesley says this was a most complicated sculpture design. For one thing, though it might not seem difficult to the average person, it was extremely hard to simulate the openings in the nozzlf o' a real watering can. The water must flare out at the perimeter and angle at the center; then it1 , must hit the child's head in the right place and 'not glance o"f the side of her face, for instance. He docs not add expressions to the faces, feeling that the contours of head and body must create the mood and tell the story. He designs a figure on the assumption that it will be seen from 30 to 40 feet away as well as up j . ' I I I I ' I I ' ' StU! I .IHJBJI .'ljff" Jjf,f?V ? L f r-. k ww Photo by H. O.

Speaking of the Swan Ball, which raises a substantial part of the annual budget for the Tennessee Botanical Gardens and Fine Arts Center, Beesley is making a unique personal, contribution. At the invitation of the Ball committee he designed a small swan, to be cast in silver and presented , each year as an award honoring an individual who has been of outstanding service in the field of fine arts. ;. This year's silver swan, the first in an ongoing series, is a gift from Beesley. The mold will become the property of the Swan Ball committee and limited to a small number of annual reproductions. The first honoree, receiving the 1971 Swan Ball Award, is to be Arthur Houghton Jr., chairman of the Metropolitan Museum 'of Art in New York and prime mover in numerous civic and cultural projects. Before going to New ' York in 1933, Beesley edited the Daily News-Journal in Murfreesboro, a newspaper he had founded and published some years before as the Murfreesboro Daily News-Banner. In New York he was super There's gingham, for instance, that is turning beauties into prairie girls this summer. Cinderella would feel right at home after all. Beene Bazaar does it in a red and white with rickrack and ruffled skirt and adds a super hand-crafted flower-decked belt sure to please art-lovers.- There are, of course, the print dresses that shout hey-look-at-me to every Prince Charming in the room. They are from ankle to floor length, come with slits here and there and bared middles occasionally. They ethnic mood, however, is passing. So better to stay away from the Indians, gypsies, and Swiss mountain lass looks. visory editor for 7 semimonthly business periodicals published by Prentice-Hall, He also wrote some articles for Vogue magazine, a book on Canasta and his cookbook for non-cooks. Sculpture, which he started as a hobby in New York and then did as portraiture on commission for a few years, became a professional sideline for him a decade ago. Now it has come home with him to Murfreesboro, filling a bachelor's retirement years with bronze children who pick wildflowers, up-end watering cans over their heads, sing songs, thread worms on a fish hook, and affectionately wrap their arms around a patient pet.
