Please stop by my solo show opening September 2, from 4:30-7 pm in Park Rapids, MN at the Nemeth Art Center. I am lucky enough to have the community gallery all to myself, so it will be filled with many sculptures and wall pieces from the last several years.
Please visit the Mankato CityArt Sculpture tour, on exhibit through May, 2018 to see my latest work, Mod Pod, on the streets of Mankato.
Mod Pod is inspired by a vintage toy space capsule crossed with a straw dispenser and retro spinning top. Each level of the sculpture contains different suspended objects to discover. Give each section a gentle spin and peek inside to see the movement of the tiny treasures inside and imagine your own liftoff!
I am silkscreening enamel onto steel panels. Each color is fired at 1350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Here is the first panel in 3 colors, based on a General Mills flour sack design.
I recently joined the Society of Minnesota Sculptors, and am excited to exhibit 3 of my sculptures
April 12 – April 30, 2017 in the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum Great Hall. Sculpture demonstrations will occur Saturday, April 15 from 1-3 PM.
Mankato City Art Walk, May 14, 2016 – May 2017-
Photos by Sue Hartley.
Installed my first semi-permanent outdoor sculpture in the city of Mankato, MN.
Treasure Tower, made of powder-coated steel rod, includes glass beads, handmade by glass artist Mary Ila Duntemann, and steel cutouts (instead of hardware) made using the CAFAC computer driven plasma cutter. These photos show visitors and the amazing City of Mankato installation team, who welded my base to steel strips embedded in their concrete pedestal.
I’m thrilled to announce I’ve been awarded an Artist Initiative Grant for my project to “design and fabricate Treasure Tower, an outdoor metal sculpture, exhibit at Chicago Avenue Fire Arts Center, give an artist talk.”
Since I was accepted into the Mankato CityArt Sculpture Walk, I plan to exhibit it there May, 2015-2016.
