Roland D. Paegle

Sculptor and Photographer   1936-2011 


Roland majored in Fine Arts at yale with additional courses at New York University and New School of Visual Arts in New York City. Before his passing in 2011, Roland was feverishly working on his plan to enlarge the Alexander Art Trail. In the years following Grazina Paegle and her family kept his legacy alive and well and went on to build an incredible outdoor experience for all to enjoy and collaborate. He was able to finish the large photomurals in the non-profit History Dome on Baltic Island in Alexander Maine literaally from his death bed. 

He has worked with fiberglass and bronze but most of his sculptures are wood. He placed a heavy emphasis on driftwood. Roland firmly believed that "Mother Nature creates a vast number of sculptures. The variations may seem endless but many are similar, such as rocks and driftwood on the shore. It is up to the artist to select, edit, carve and modify Nature's creations. I call it collaborative art and find it fun."

Roland has also designed layouts and covers for bulletins and pamphlets. Newspapers in New York, Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland and Toronto have used his photos. ABC-TV in New York broadcast his film footage.
