A well-sculpted path.

Sarah Silberman remembers scooping up hat tar from the roadside to sculpt into lime figures. Today Silberman, a 95-year-old artist and community-college student, still loves getting her hands dirty. Some of her work is currently showing at Montgomery College's Art Gallery in Rockville, Md., in the exhibit "Sarah Silberman: A 75-Year Retrospective" through Oct. 22. Silberman began studying sculpture at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts before enrolling at the Corcoran College of Art and Design In Washington, D.C. In 1981, Silberman discovered Montgomery College, where she has taken or audited more than 170 classes. She is often spotted intently sculpting figures. "I'm with creative people, which Is stimulating," she said. "Being my age, I'm the grandmother to most of the kids [here]." (One of her untitled works is at right.)
