Artist Studio Tours
Jim West, Sculptor: West is known for his monumental figurative works in bronze. West brings a bold style and passion to the contemporary art scene with a new series of interactive sculptures incorporating light, kinetics, and sound. His distinct fusion of technology with sculpture is redefining figurative art and multi-media storytelling through intensely visceral, abstract works that ignite uniquely personal, emotional responses.
Mary B. Mason, metal smith: The foundation of my Mason’s experience is built upon twenty-five years of creating and teaching art in four different states. Moving to the Pittsburgh area from Baton Rouge, Louisiana has helped her to make connections with people and materials for my glass on metal pieces. Her Statement Pieces are created not only to wear, but to tell a story, communicate an idea, or to make a statement. Some qualities can inherently amplify concept and expression of social awareness, political ideology, gender identity or personal experience.
Michael Stephens: Stephens’ passion in art is in the direction of found object creations. He started working in the jewelry medium with found objects back in the 1980’s and is expanding into the creation of art objects, sculptures, steampunk and wall art. Some of his work fits into the steampunk genre while much of it simply reflects the large pallet that found-objects offer to an artist. Most of his work is true one of a kind art. Often duplicates can not be be made because the materials are not available. However, that reality also reflects my desire to purchase and procure only those objects that are one-time finds.
Bill Brunken: Tour the studio and get a demonstration by Pittsburgh Artist Bill Brunken.
Thomas McNickle: New Castle native and nationally recognized landscape painter takes us on a tour of his Volant studio while giving us insite into his work, his methods, and the countryside that inspires him.
