Out on the road…

furnaceI’ve been fortunate enough to be asked to be a visiting artist next week at Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville GA, where we will be completing their first aluminum furnace!  Fellow WVU graduate student and alum Matt Forrest is now faculty at GCSU, and I look forward to meeting the rest of the faculty and students and sharing what we’ve been up to at Fairmont State University.

I’m also excited to be traveling to Sloss Furnaces in Birmingham for the National Conference on Contemporary Cast Iron Art & Practices.  Lots going on at this event, giving a demo on pattern making, helping Professor Kurt Dyrhaug and his students on their furnace, a piece in the Professional Exhibition, and giving a presentation on the 2018 International Cast Iron in Art Conference in Scranton PA.  Busy Busy!

Give Me Some Space!

O-6 was recently accepted to the Marshall University: School of Art & Design 6th Annual National Juried Exhibition titled “Give Me Some Space!”.  This year’s exhibition was juried by Alison Helm, chair/coordinator of the WVU Visual Arts Department, and it sounds like a great show.  If you are in the area, the exhibition opens January 16th at the Marshall VAC and runs through February 10th.

New Castings from Sculpture I

A great cross-section of new work by the FSU Intro to Sculpture crew, especially considering I didn’t give them much time to get patterns made and molds packed up this fall.  Another big thanks to the Shepherd U sculpture department for having us down to pour and the folks at Quikrete for generously supplying us with a great sand for molds-

2 person exhibition at Ground Floor Gallery in Nashville

“unhinged” traveling to Denver for Ice Breaker 6

After the small works exhibition in Philly, this little guy will be heading to Denver.  He was slated to meet his other two mates out there, but they will still be in TX at a show.  Exciting to get these pieces out to the public, the feedback has been positive.
