UPCOMING EVENTS IN OCTOBER

Luncheon at historic venue showcases Kevin and his work

Kevin is appearing at LON's Artist-in-Residence series on Sunday, October 16. This intimate event takes place from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. on the patio of LON's restaurant at the historic Hermosa Inn.

Kevin will display some of his newest work as well as discuss how he created it, all in the gracious setting of one of Phoenix's hidden treasures. If you've never been to LON's, this is a perfect opportunity to discover a Southwestern gem. If you have, you know why you want to come.

Mobilus, a kinetic fine art sculpture by Kevin Caron

'HAVE YOU SEEN THIS SCULPTURE?'

On Saturday, October 1, Kevin discovered that someone had stolen the sculpture Mobilus from the front yard of his residence. "It was really a shock," Kevin says.

Despite reporting the theft to the police, neighbors and online, the sculpture remains missing. It was slated to appear in the show Magic on Main.

"I'd hoped someone had picked it up as a joke, and we'd find it on top of a house or something," Kevin adds.

If you have any information about the sculpture, please contact us at info@kevincaron.com or 602-952-8767.


PROJECTS UNDER WAY IN THE STUDIO

Several sculptures to be introduced at LON's and Magic on Main are near completion.

Among them are the flowing grid sculptures Rush, Cyclone, the formed steel sculpture Reach and the shaped sculpture Sanctuary.

Kevin will also be showing the recently named found materials sculpture Devil's Dreads at Magic on Main.

"I'm introducing some new types of work at the show," Kevin says. "I'm looking forward to seeing what people have to say about these new directions."


Channel Kevin - videos by Kevin Caron

LATEST VIDEOS

New series at Channel Kevin proves popular

Since our last newsletter, Channel Kevin has marked some milestones.

Kevin's most popular video, TIG Welding Technique," has now topped a half-million views and more than a dozen videos have more than 10,000 views. "I may not be as popular as Lady Gaga, but it's really gratifying that so many people have found my videos worthwhile," Kevin says.

Kevin has also started a new series, "Tools for the Studio," based on a request from a longtime YouTube subscriber. "He wanted to know what tools I started out with," Kevin explains. Three of his latest videos explore that question, and there will likely be another three to complete the series. "It is interesting to look back at why and when I got each piece of equipment."

You can enjoy Kevin's latest videos on his new Web site:

You can see all of Kevin's videos on his Web site's Video section, which links directly to his YouTube channel.
