You don’t have to be present to win…
the attached fine art bronze sculpture which will be raffled off at the 110th Annual
Session at The Greenbrier.  The statue is 23 inches tall and weighs 15 lbs.
This magnificent piece was sculptured by 1966 WVU School of Dentistry graduate
Burl Jones, D.D.S. originally from Sissonville who now divides his time between
his homes in West Virginia and Huntley, Montana.  Burl will be present for the
drawing of his sculpture…Mountaineer Upward Bound.   Burl is looking forward
to renewing friendships with fellow classmates of 1965, ’66 and ’67 during the
meeting at The Greenbrier.
Burl excelled in academics and athletics, attending West Virginia University on a
football scholarship and graduating Summa Cum Laude from the dental school.
A two year stint in the United States Public Health Service brought him to the
Flathead Indian Reservation in Montana.  This exposure to Native American
culture, western wildlife and frontier ethic would prove to be a major influence on
his work.
After 25 years of dentistry, Burl shifted gears several years ago to focus on his
sculpture.  Native Americans, fishermen and hunters all come to have a life of
their own under his skilled hands.  He has produced over 200 original sculptures
in limited editions which have been sold to collectors world wide.
West Virginia is still Burl’s home.  His works are available from his studio-gallery
near Sissonville and Tamarack (WV Turnpike) as well as major galleries country-
wide.   View his work at [email protected]
The sale of chances to win this piece of art are open to all dentists whether or
not they plan to attend the 110th Annual Session.  You don’t have to be present
to win.  Proceeds will help fund student scholarships.
Entry fee is $100.
