I will demonstrate making a relief sculpture on December 5th. Please visit Melrose Arts art demos for details.
Bas-relief Demonstration Description:
This art form has been used since ancient times to portray images on walls and ceilings of caves, and as pictorial carvings on the side of mountains, as on Mount Rushmore. Relief sculptures are commonly seen on the surfaces of stone buildings such as the friezes on the Parthenon. It is often used to commemorate historic narratives, and on a personal scale as plaques, or on seals, coins, and jewelry.
In this workshop this process will be demonstrated through reductive and additive processes to create a portrait relief sculpture.
It is time to celebrate spring again. Visit me during the wonderful SOS, Somerville Open Studios. I have had a successful year and would love to show you my new work.
Here is a bit about Vernon Street Studios:
“Vernon Street Studios is a community well known throughout the area for the quality of work produced by artists with established reputations as well as exciting newcomers. Located in an historic 19th-century brick industrial building, Vernon Street housed the first group of artists in Somerville to open their studios to the public in 1975. Open Studios allows attendees to learn about the creative process, interact with artists in the spaces where they create, purchase original artwork, and discover new talent.
