Stay tuned for completion images... coming soon.
Our "In the Studio" update from NSG Fellow Darrell Davis is about the build of the studio itself. What a great new space, we can't wait to see what sculpture creations come out of here.
Stay tuned for completion images... coming soon.
Gary Alsum's grandson, Trevor, gave a hands-on critique about filling in the negative spaces of "Tried and True" the Veteran's Memorial commissioned by the University of Central Oklahoma.
The piece will go through the bronze casting process soon thanks to Trevor's help.
Hopefully he doesn't charge too high.

One of our patrons sent us these beautiful images from their sculpture garden. Did you know John frequently designs floral elements in our placements? Gardening is one of his passions. And landscaping can be just as expressive as the art showcased in it.
These cactus in Boerne, Texas are displaying their amazing colors, and it is breath taking.
Share the simple beauty that is surrounding you these days, sometimes it's art, sometimes it's nature's sculptures.
Hopefully you have a little of each enhancing your space.

Our artist, Joe Norman may have too much time on his hands. Here's a video he's shared showing the effects of Stay-At-Home on artists who have studios and tools locked up in shared work spaces. Don't worry, we're checking in on him regularly.

Gary Miller at work in the studio of the home he built with his wife Tammie in the mountains west of Fort Collins, Colorado. Gary has documented this painting from its beginning. It is about 80% complete at the point shown here.... when he sends all the photos we will post them here.
In the meantime, you can preorder this painting here. It will ship directly from the studio once dry.
New pieces are underway at NSG Fellow Sandy Scott's studio. She rarely slows down creating new work, and we aren't surprised that the health crisis isn't stopping her.
The pieces shown here in clay can be pre-ordered from our special section on our online store. These are listed with introductory pricing, with a $400 savings! so, it's truly a great time to add this renowned wildlife artist to your collection, if you are able.
Sandy's foundry in Lander, WY is currently open at a reduced staff, so please expect 8-12 weeks for the bronze casting time from the time of your order. With your Sales Code "PREORDER", shipping is free!
"Dos Amigos", and "Earitated" speak to our little Springtime buddies that I'm sure you're all seeing hopping about yards.
"Dos Amigos" 11 1/2 W x 7 1/2 D x 12 H - size includes oval walnut base; Ed/50. click here to purchase
"Earitated" 9 3/4 W x 6 1/2 D x 6 H - size includes oval walnut base; Ed/50. click here to purchase
"The New Puppy". The narrative speaks for itself . . . it is an old dog laying next to a new puppy that's asleep. Trish and I got a new Scottish Terrier puppy 3 weeks ago and we have an old bird dog. While the breeds are not the same as the sculpture . . . the sentiment is. Maybe many of you have new pups during this Stay-At-Home time and can relate.

What happens when you have an engineer/artist dad (Joe Norman), a bright young girl and a 3D printer to make prototypes during a stay-in-place order? Construct a icosahedron fort! What an awesome homeschool project!!
We've got our eyes on Abby, she's going places already. Also, I want a play day in that fort!
From Joe: "Attached are some photos of me and Abby learning about icosahedrons and building her new fort in the backyard, after prototyping it with 3D printed sockets we designed that fit Q-tips as structural members. We then used 2x4's and door hinges to make the full size version."
In geometry, an icosahedron is a polyhedron with 20 faces. The name comes from Ancient Greek εἴκοσι, meaning 'twenty', and ἕδρα, meaning 'seat'. There are infinitely many non-similar shapes of icosahedra, some of them being more symmetrical than others.
"I am trying to keep my students painting while we cannot physically get together. For April, we had an assignment to paint one subject three times with different lighting. Below are my three examples.
If you like any of these paintings, they are also available in our new preorder section of the store.
For the month of May we are going to paint a white on white subject of your choice.
Anyone is welcome to join in! I will critique paintings if anyone needs that! If you're interested, just contact the gallery and they will put you in touch with me.
