Bellatrix Gamma Orionis
We lost our beloved Bella in July. She was 9 years and a few months old. She was the consummate sculpture model and inspired dozens of sculptures. She will live on in bronze. See our memorial page to her.
The smaller Tickled is included in the 51st Annual Exhibition of the Society of Animal Artists opening September 17th at the Dennos Museum, Traverse City, MI.
Classes and Workshops
I will be teaching at Brookgreen Gardens in South Carolina September 12-16 2011. The subject is Modeling the Dog. Using live models as the subject I will cover design, composition, expression, anatomy and proportion.
This class is now fully booked, but you can email me for more information about private workshops at my studio in Guffey, Colorado.
The National Sculpture Society
In 2010 I was elected as a Fellow of the National Sculpture Society. This year I was elected to Council Director and will have the honor of serving on the board of directors of this important organization which exists to support, educate and inspire figurative sculptors since 1893.
In November 2010 the Manitou Springs Art Theatre presented a play called Art Dog based on the censoring and subsequent banishment of a life size anatomically correct Great Dane sculpture of mine, Dog Days. I don't remembering ever laughing so hard for so long. A story about it was featured on the front page of the Colorado Springs Gazette. To protect the innocent, the Great Dane in the play was replaced by a Poodle.
At the Hudson Valley 80th Annual Exhibition, Tickled won the Leonard J. Meiselman Award.
