New Toth sculptures unveiled Thursday at Fine Frame Gallery

The Fine Frame Gallery will host “A Tribute to Magic” at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 23, which will feature an unveiling of artist Robert Toth’s portrait sculptures of magicians Harry Houdini and Harry Blackstone. The unveiling will include a nine-inch Harry Houdini sculpture, a 12-inch Harry Blackstone sculpture and a 15-inch-by-18-inch Houdini plaque.
Toth received a commission to do the portraits by Gary Darwin Magic Museum in Las Vegas. They are part of his Masters series.
The event will open with magicians Buddy Farnan and Glenn Yost. Both Farnan and Yost saw Blackstone(1885-1965) perform.
Houdini was known as the greatest escape artist in history. Blackstone was known for his inventiveness with a disappearing bird in a cage and a floating light bulb over his audience — one especially designed by Thomas Edison.
Fine Frame Gallery is located at 105 S. Main St. For more information, call 704-647-0340.
