I am excited to have weighting accepted to the Western Cast Iron Conference show Concept to Completion in Scottsdale Arizona. The show had over 110 entries and was juried by Mary Bates Neubauer and Wendy Raisanen. This exhibition will take place during the 2016 5th Biennial Western Cast Iron Art Conference and will be on display in Scottsdale, Arizona in The Gallery@ the Civic Center Library. The show runs October 3rd-December 31, 2016.
New work installed on the FSU campus from our Sculpture III students, check it out-
Student work from 3D Design and Sculpture I at FSU
The first semester of the new sculpture program wrapped up last thursday with final critiques, and the students rose to the occasion. Lots of sweat and tears, but only minimal blood, so that’s a plus. The 3D students researched and built scaled-up pieces in the style of Claes Oldenburg, using mostly foam, paint, and some found objects. Scale was critical, and they pulled it off. The Sculpture classes had the opportunity to build a sculptural table, with function being optional. There was a broad range of outcomes, from finely crafted functional furniture to interesting sculpture.
This piece is an abstracted interpretation of how Philadelphia ironworkers, part of the local “401” trade union, could look if they became the construct of their actions on site. Better documentation will be coming, these shots are from my studio during construction and the initial install in a small, local gallery in Morgantown.
