Member news:

From Kristen Abramson: "Jocelyn and I are showing work at the San Juan Museum of Art for the next couple of months. It's a show called ‘Cracking the Surface.’ I have a horse in there and she has the meerkats."

Tulsa sculptor Gary Hale and Rosalind Cook have sold life size sculptures to Louisville, Colorado. "We both work with the same gallery in Breckenridge, CO, and they made the sales for us.... Gary's flying life size eagle and my life size Melody.... Gary's was already installed and mine is being cast. Greetings to all from soon to be snowy Colorado!"

Gary Hale

Rosalind Cook

More from Gary: "On Eagles Wings," recently installed in Louisville outside of Boulder, Colorado, stands about 7' high with the stone base. This couple has several of Roz's pieces as well as mine in their collection. Wonderful people. Also included are pics from an install in OKC this summer. A private commission, the model is shown along with the bronze. When the dog first saw the piece he stopped and tentatively stretched out his neck, as if to say "what the heck?" Life size Bernese mountain dog. The base for this piece is from Willis Granite. Good people to work with if anyone ever needs that kind of stone for a larger piece."


Catherine Johnston’s latest casting, "Strength and Courage," cast in Loveland, CO

Larry Waid submitted 3 sculptures for the A.R.T. show at the Hive Art Gallery in Jenks. It was a juried event at which he won 1st place (Moon Flower) and 3rd place (Queen of the Mountains, cougar) for 3-D entries
