SPECTRE DEBUTS AT CHARTREUSE
Kevin is pleased to participate in Five15 Arts' Seventh Annual Five15 to the Fifth art show this summer. Kevin was invited to participate by Five15 artist Daniel Prendergast. Kevin's recent 3D-printed sculpture Spectre will debut at the show, which runs through July and August. Visit the Events page for details and a map.
In a high profile East Coast show, Kevin's large format 3D-printed sculpture Mount Glacier appeared in Artexpo New York, which was held Thursday, April 19 to Sunday, April 22. "This was a great opportunity for people back East to see my large format 3D-printed work," says Kevin.

WHAT'S NEW IN 3D PRINTING: "3D-PRINTED SCULPTURE STORMS TUCSON"
What does 3D printing have to do with art? Kevin shares his adventures with this new technology in his blog, "A Sculptor Takes on 3D Printing."
Kevin's latest post shares more about what happened at the big sculpture show in Tucson. Check it out.

NEW IN THE STUDIO
Front and center on his workbench right now is Schubertii. This 10-foot-tall sculpture, inspired by and titled after the plant of the same name, will have spinning flowers atop it.
The ball and flowers are now ready for powder coating - they will be assembled after they receive that finish. Meanwhile, Kevin is working on the stem ((left), which will be 7 feet, 9 inches tall. "Making this stem look organic while also functional is an intriguing challenge," says Kevin. Like the flowers, the ball will spin, so there is some engineering to do as well as general fabrication, such as the creation of the sculpture's stem. See Schubertii grow on its own page.
When he is taking a break from Schubertii, Kevin has been creating another kinetic sculpture that does not yet have a title. It will be a spinner with the frame on the outside, much like his sound sculpture Nucleus. "It is surprisingly tricky to get the three sections to come together properly," Kevin observes. His spinners are wind activated, although a push by hand will work, too. See its progress thus far for yourself.
Kevin's newest sculpture that grew simply out of his very active imagination, High Simmer, made its debut at the inaugural Sculpture Tucson art show. It is slated to be featured in Phoenix Home & Garden magazine in July in a fun new feature. Meanwhile, see the official photo of this striking sculpture on its own page.
In his 3D-printing practice, Kevin recently finished the luminous sculpture Spectre, which will debut this summer at the Five15 Arts' Seventh Annual Five15 to the Fifth art show. "This piece printed flawlessly and easily," says Kevin. "That's not always true, so this was a pleasure." See more photos of Spectre on its own page.
Kevin also recently created a subtle yet striking sculpture that does not yet have a title. He may apply a finish to it, but for now, this sultry 3D-printed sculpture is basking in the sunlight .... Watch it develop on its own page.
Also just completed is the sound sculpture Sound - Silence, a sound sculpture with an unusual void in it. This sculptural windchime is now available at Van Gogh's Ear Gallery in Prescott, Arizona. See this new sound sculpture on its own page.
Kevin has also recently completed a new sound sculpture that is really different. It also now has its title: EyeSing. And it has a new home. A couple in Prescott, Arizona, now enjoy its sweet tones. See EyeSing on its own page.
