Saturday, April 30 at 1:00pm.
Our next sculpture visit will be to Kevin Caron’s studio. A metal and 3D printing sculptor, Kevin is excited to share his studio and work with the group. The presentation is set for 1pm on Saturday, April 30th. That day just happens to be International Sculpture Day, so it is a fitting day for the group’s next art adventure.
If you plan on attending, you must contact me, John, at: firstname.lastname@example.org, at least a few days before the event. I will have more info, closer to the day.
Kevin Caron bio:
Known for his swooping, towering and often confounding creations, artist Kevin Caron’s inspired sculpture can be seen in public and private places from coast to coast as well as overseas and online at http://www.kevincaron.com. 2018 Phoenix Mayor’s Visual Artist of the Year, his artwork were featured in an ABC 20/20 special. His more than 50 commissions include his
monumental sculpture ‘Top Knot’ for the Surprise, Arizona, Civic Center Plaza. His monumental sculpture ‘Wherever You Go, There You Are’ was purchased and now stands in front of Whitaker Museum for Science and the Arts in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. In addition to his metal works, Caron is a pioneer in creating 3D-printed sculptures as large as 5-1/2 feet tall.
My first love was for machinery. Its immaculate steel composition and constructed perfection afforded orchestrated movement, couched in the joy of solitude. My education as an artist is synonymously tied to the roads I have consumed on a motorcycle and behind the wheel of an 80,000 pound semi truck. I spent more than 30 years meditating and molding shapes in my mind, so when an opportunity to sculpt my first piece presented itself, the transition from mental manipulation to the creation of physical structures was seamless and effortless. Now I focus on the sensuality of shapes, the gentle rise and fall of their sides and junctures, seeking illusion and movement in contour and graceful proportion. I download shapes and spaces from my mind and allow them to flow through my hands, very much as I do when riding. That intuitive force, fueled by the intellectual challenges of physical creation, drives me to create artwork that breathes its own life.
We hope to see you there,
John & Melanie
