In addition to ourmedallion contest, our 2018 kickoff program will be presented by Australian native Stephen Schwark, who moved to the U.S. in 2014, settling in Stillwater Oklahoma with his young family. Creating metal sculpture for over 15 years, Stephen has been fortunate enough to have sold his work all over the globe.
Schwark draws his inspiration from the perfection of the natural world and the depths of human imagination. His medium is mostly reclaimed metal. In most cases the metal has been through decades of wear and has then succumb to a forgotten life on the ground. That is until Schwark finds this lonely piece of metal and transcends it into a sculpture that can forever be present in one’s home or gallery.
Ol’ Blue is a 7-foot metal sculpture of the giant of giants ... the Blue Whale.
"The ocean has played a very important role in my life, and to make a sculpture of the largest living creature in the world was a very rewarding experience. This sculpture balances freely upon a stand that emulates the graceful motion they portray in the depths of the ocean. Whales have always intrigued me with their curious nature and intelligent minds. They are the true gentle giants."
Remember to bring your medallion entries and sculpture to share! That’s at 7:00 p.m. onThursday, January 11, at the Contemporary Arts Center on the State Fairgrounds. If you have not created a new medallion, the ones you entered in previous years are eligible for entry into this year’s contest.
