During my recent trip to North Carolina, I installed Helios Rising at its new permanent home with a wonderful collector of mine. The sculpture is nestled beautifully in a forested landscape just in front of the house… really, the image doesn’t do it justice. The rain (mostly) held off, giving us time to fine-tune the(…)
A couple weeks ago was the opening of the annual Essential Art Competition by one of our local organizations, Visual Arts Minnesota. I’ve been doing the show for years and it’s a good reason to get out of the studio in the middle of winter and visit the beautiful Paramount Theatre in downtown St. Cloud. (…)
A little while back I exhibited at Sculpture at the River Market in Little Rock, AR and took home a couple awards. There were six Awards of Excellence given out and I received one of those, which was quite nice. The really cool one, however, was the Peer Award. Voted on by the other sculptors,(…)
I recently dropped off a pair of sculptures at the Anderson Center for the Arts down in Red Wing, MN for the grand opening of their new expansion/renovation of a beautiful old barn. Actually, I suspect the barn started out beautiful, then went into slow decline over the next 100+ years of it’s life, until(…)
Thanks to everyone who came by to check out my work at our local ING Direct Cafe last Friday. There was a good turnout and the response to my most recent work was very flattering. It’s a beautifully spacious, unorthodox space that suited my work perfectly. Here are some images of what ended up being(…)
I’ll be at our local ING Cafe for the Art Crawl this evening from 4-10pm. I don’t get a chance to participate in these that often, but when they called me up and asked if I’d be their featured artist, I quickly agreed. The rest of the Art Crawl will continue on Saturday, but this(…)
Last weekend the whole family took a short trip up to the Park Point Art Fair in Duluth. We were a little anxious after seeing the massive flooding there on the news, but after confirming our campsite was dry and the show was still on, we loaded into the truck and hit the road. The(…)
I’ve been back for a week and a half or so now but I’ve been consumed by planting trees. I have approximately 800 in the ground with only 100 or so to go. A full update on that project, along with drawings and images of the broad landscape design, will come later. Right now it’s(…)
I’ll be at the 18th Annual Sculpture Invitational in Hillsborough, NC this upcoming weekend. It’s always a great show full of wonderful people and beautiful work – what more can you ask for?
This weekend I’ll be at the beautiful Plaza Art Fair in Kansas City, MO. If you’re in the area, stop by booth #110 and say Hi. There’s going to be some great work there and the weather looks very promising as well. September 23, 24 & 25 Friday: 5 – 10pm Saturday: 10am – 10pm(…)
I just returned from installing a solo show at Upper Iowa University in Fayette. Well, perhaps not that little… I brought 15 works in all and they filled out the space beautifully. The hospitality and response was great, just a wonderful trip.
Last week I dropped off Nighthawk at the Elmhurst Art Museum for the Chicago Sculpture International exhibition. Named the “Best Suburban Art Museum in Chicago” by Chicago Magazine, it is a beautiful little museum located in one of the only three houses in the US designed by Mies van der Rohe. The show will run(…)
This Friday is the opening reception for The Precious Object, a group exhibition I’m a part of at the Minneapolis Central Library organized by the Walker Art Center and mnartists.org. Bringing together a diverse group of artists, it looks to be a really interesting show. Stop by later in October for some panel discussions on(…)
The whole family at the installation of Nighthawk for SculptureWalk in Sioux Falls, SD.
It’s that time of the year again for Art in the Garden, the Fifteenth Annual Sculpture Invitational, in Hillsborough, North Carolina. If you find yourself near the Triangle Area the weekend of May 2-3, stop by, say hi, and check out some great sculpture. Rain or shine, a great time is always had by all.(…)
Before the opening at SCSU this afternoon, I took some installation shots as well as images of a few pieces that were so new that I hadn’t even documented them yet. The large white piece you see in the foreground is a good example. I finished it only a couple weeks before I had to(…)
