Or KEEP UP WITH KEVIN HERE WITH THIS NEWS ...KEVIN'S WORK NOW AVAILABLE AT INART GALLERY IN SANTA FE
Kevin made a rainy and snowy visit to Santa Fe November 20 - 23 to deliver artwork to his new gallery, InArt Gallery Santa Fe. "Unloading my 14-foot-long trailer and back of my pickup in heavy snow was a mindbender for this desert dweller!" admits Kevin.
InArt owner Mike McKosky's excitement about the work, which will be featured at both his gallery on Delgado Street and at the Four Seasons Rancho Encantado, which McKosky is also curating.
Kevin will have both indoor and outdoor work exhibited. "I'm very excited about having my work shown - and sold - at InArt Gallery," says Kevin.
Visit the gallery at 219 Delgado Street, just off Canyon Road.
CAMELBACK STUDIO TOUR DRAWS CROWDS AND COMPLIMENTS
From Friday, November 1 through Sunday, November 3, the crowds and excitement grew for the 11th annual Camelback Studio Tour. "Sunday was our busiest day," says Kevin. "There was so much going on in the Valley that we were really happy with the attendance and results!"
People enjoyed Kevin's new "cubist" 3D-printed sculpture as well as Jill Friedberg's distinctive mixed media work and Laura Mesirow's unusual seed bead and wrapped wire jewelry.
"It was really exciting to see how the artists' work complemented each other," says Kevin. "We had lots of amazing comments, and are glad to see several sculptures as well as jewelry head home with patrons!"
Among the sculptures that found homes are Copperhead, Ruby maquette, Twilight and a giant caterpillar named Georg, as well as 3D-printed earrings and necklaces.
Kevin and the tour also got some great press ....
IN THE NEWS: TV COVERAGE OF TOUR COMPLEMENTS PRINT ARTICLES
In addition to several profiles about him, Kevin filled the metro Phoenix airwaves in the last few weeks to promote the 11th annual Camelback Studio Tour.
Channel 10's Tom Fergus interviewed Kevin and Lynn Gustafson, a glass artist and organizer of the tour, in Kevin's 3D-printing studio, which is in his home, and Channel 7's Brad Perry gave morning viewers a peek of the tour with Kevin and Lynn. Then on Saturday, November 2 during the event, Channel 3's Jess Parsons interviewed them again at Kevin's home studio. That coverage appeared live at 7 a.m., then at 9 a.m. and in the evening as well as on Channel 3's associate Channel 5. "A number of people saw the segments and came by," says Kevin. "Each interview was fun, too!"
On the 3D-printing front, MyEMSSolutions.com, an electronics manufacturer, featured Kevin's comments about the future of 3D Printing.
CODASUMMIT ART, TECHNOLOGY & PLACE GATHERING FOCUSES ON TECHNOLOGY
Kevin shared his adventures with 3D printing large-format sculpture at the CODAsummit Art, Technology & Place conference October 2 - 4 at the El Paso, Texas, Museum of Art.
A number of presentations focused on large data-driven light and technology displays. "This is a totally different way to use technology," says Kevin.
He also learned more about using robots to carve sculptures. This would allow him to create some of the sculptures he has created in CAD ("Computer Aided Software") that would be difficult if not impossible to create in metal. Says Kevin: "This is really exciting to me!"
WHAT'S NEW IN 3D PRINTING: "BACK TO THE FUTURE: UP AND RUNNING"
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."
It's been a busy season for Kevin, not unusual for an artist, and now that it's back up and running, his Cerberus 3D Gigante printer is an important part of the mix. Check it out in his latest 3D blog post.
NEW IN THE STUDIO
After 7 months of work, Weeping Tree, a commission for a private sculpture and horticultural garden, is completed and has arrived in New York, and the patron says it may well be the centerpiece of his garden. Twenty painted spinning leaves hang from the sculpture's five branches. See a final photo on Weeping Tree's own Webpage.
Now that he's completed Weeping Tree and Fisher Five, the large sound sculpture he installed last month, Kevin was able to turn back to a small sound sculpture, which now has a title. Visit this sound sculpture's page to learn more about its title and see its unusual form.
Kevin has also been busy with 3D PRINTING.
"One of the big draws for the Camelback Studio Tour was the Cerberus 3D Gigante 8-foot-tall 3D printer running," says Kevin. "A lot of people saw it and the work on television and wanted to see it in person."
Visitors also got the first real look at Kevin's new "cubist" style of 3D-printed sculpture. "Ruby, which is 46" tall, was a special hit," says Kevin. The sculpture was prominently displayed in the gallery style setting.
Kevin printed 3 sculptures during the show. One failed, but the other two came out beautifully. One, Amethyst City, is the new cubist style, while the other, Solar Conundrum (left in a temporary photo), is a version of his twisting tower design. See Amethyst City's scintillating spire and Solar Conundrum's twists and turns on their own pages.
He's also created Ice Princess, another sculpture in this cubist style that "paints" in grosser scale. "Some of the areas are a single layer thick," observes Kevin, "giving this sculpture amazing translucency." See a larger temporary photo of Ice Princess on its own page.
Other new 3D-printed sculptures include Copperhead, which sold during the Camelback Studio Tour. "I've gotten a great response to it on social media," says Kevin.
Keep up with what Kevin's up to in the studio by visiting the Work in progress section of the Web site.
