Rhymer will be demonstrating all aspects of bronze sculpting from working with clay to pouring bronze on-site! These demonstrations will be held throughout the day Friday and Saturday August 22<sup>nd</sup>&nbsp;and 23<sup>rd</sup>&nbsp;only at our Canyon Road gallery. We will also be featuring new bronzes from other gallery artists in our fabulous sculpture garden.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Paul Rhymer</strong>&nbsp;comes from a family of artists and has drawn and painted his whole life.&nbsp; After receiving an Associate of Arts degree from a local college in 1984, he accepted a job at the Smithsonian Institution doing taxidermy and model making and retired in 2010.&nbsp; As a result of so much three-dimensional work in his museum job, his own personal artwork gradually began to transform from painting and drawing into sculpture.&nbsp; Being an avid birder, waterfowl hunter, and taxidermist gives him constant anatomy and behavioral learning experiences that inspire his sculpture.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Paul&rsquo;s work has been exhibited in such prestigious art shows such as the National Sculpture Society, the Society of Animal Artists and Birds in Art. His wildlife sculpture is at the National Zoo, National Museum of Natural History, the Denver Zoo, Woodson Art Museum, Hiraim Blauvelt Museum and various public buildings and parks and private collections thought the US. He is on the Boards of Directors for the Society of Animal Artists and the Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art.</p> Sat, 30 Aug 2014 14:36:54 +0000 MATT MAGEE - James Kelly Contemporary - August 29th - October 25th Sat, 30 Aug 2014 14:32:19 +0000
