I created ‘Fresh Buds’ especially for The ContemporAry Austin’s Five x Seven event. On Wednesday, April 2, hundreds of original artworks on 5” x 7” canvases will be available for sale for $150 (or $100 for museum members). Tickets for this fundraiser can be purchased via the museum’s website.
Outliers -- such as sculptors like myself -- are also encouraged to submit artwork to the Five x Seven event. I kept my piece ‘roughly’ within the sizing guidelines. Outliers -- such as sculptors like myself -- get a little more leeway on this point...
Shameless plug ALERT: At last year's event, my sculpture 'Chirp!' was amongst the few artworks "pre-selected by a Center Circle member."
I forged 'Fresh Buds' on my 25-lb. Little Giant power hammer, using 1/2” square stock. This sculpture's in keeping with a ‘botanicals series’ I’m working on as of late.
A gallery exhibit of my botanically inspired sculptures is on the horizon, so I'll keep you posted as that develops.
