We are loving the first heavy snow of the season for Northern Colorado. It's always fun to see how mother nature adds her touch to the sculpture in the National Sculptors' Guild garden.
Our 25th Anniversary present to ourselves was a new parking lot. Kind of like a vacuum cleaner gift?! ok, but we're looking pretty slick with Columbine Blue for stripes and all... If you've visited us recently, you know how needed this was. #NoMorePotHoles Thanks Coulson Excavating.
We are excited to be temporarily closed today and tomorrow because we are finally getting our parking surface refinished. Yea! Thanks Coulson Excavating! #Asphalt #SorryWeReClosed You can still #BuyOnline

Who does the National Sculptors' Guild use for cleaning and conservation? We recommend Sculpture Services of Colorado for all our clients whether it's monumental public art, or a residential collection.
They travel throughout the US and are superb at what they do.
"Sculptures should actually look like the day the collector brought the sculpture into their collection, especially bronze."

Nearly a dozen new paintings have arrived from Tal Walton, transforming Columbine's front room. The pieces are incredibly strong, even the most subtle images. A most notable distinction from past work is the diverse and bold palettes Tal is currently exploring, although his voice is clearly still present.

"Those brave sculptors who wouldn't be deterred from sharing their visions. ...put forth their best efforts and kept foundries, fabrication shops, and brick and mortar gallery doors open. Sculpture is a team sport in most instances requiring many hands." -John Kinkade from 'Sculpture in Today's World', Art of the West July/August 2017 Pick up a copy to read the full article....
The National Sculptors' Guild Sculpture Garden is filling up for summer with new sculpture and blossoms. We are pleased to have three new pieces from Stephen Shachtman. click the images below to shop online.
Stephen Shachtman is constantly seeking to find something new and stimulating in either a physical or cerebral sense. The sculptures he creates circulate with aesthetics in contemporary forms with influences and inspiration from, science, architecture, and techniques. These inspirations inform him to create series’ with specific dialogue due to process', dimensions, material usage, and overall presence.
Depending on the sculptural forms and concepts, a few primary materials employed are; copper, glass, and steel. Some of the elements in Stephen’s work range from; hammered surfaces which have an organic aesthetic while overall forms tend to have clean lines with a minimalist approach yet are monolithic in presence. Some aesthetics are large-scale filigree in the metal that allows a viewer to see through the organic forms, while similar manipulation of glass elements are stacked to create positive and negative spaces. All pieces are affected by the orientation of light to unveil the personality of the sculptures, which create a 4th dimension of shadows and reflection as they emerge to produce an element of surprise.
