Art Exhibitions

Concrete sculpture

Almost every month my paintings and sculpture work goes on exhibit in a new art venue. As an artist, I am constantly searching for new exhibition opportunities. It is part of what being an artist entails, especially if you are trying to achieve even a glimmer of exposure and recognition. You have to pay your dues.

While most of my time is spent designing and creating my art, time is also spent delivering artwork to galleries for exhibitions and then often retrieving pieces that haven’t sold.

In August 2019, one of the exhibitions that I was invited to participate in was a Sculpture Walk in Blowing Rock, NC. Although this is quite an endeavor to transport large sculptures to exhibit outdoors, it is an opportunity to meet possible new collectors. It was a beautiful setting and quite a well organized event.

Horse Sculpture Awarded First Place at Art of the State

My cement sculpture titled A Horse of Course was awarded first place in sculpture at the opening reception for Art of the State.  The show which opened on June 28, 2015 runs until September.  This was quite an honor considering that artists from all across the state of PA entered pieces of art for this exhibit.  Over 1000 pieces of art were considered and only 126 pieces were juried into the show.  Just to be included in the show was exciting.

The horse is built over a metal and wire armature and then I coated a mixture of sand, cement and red oxide pigment over the entire figure.  Several coats of cement were applied and then for the last coat, the boar bristle mane and tail were added.  Strips of muslin were also coated with the cement mixture and these were wound around the metal legs.  A cement piece must cure for a total of 28 days before it is totally cured.

Currently, I am working on a number of new sculpture which I will post soon.
