Rowe Fine Art Gallery “Class Act”

Profile

There is a certain mystery surrounding the creation of art, especially bronze sculptures, which require so many steps along the way. Award-winning wildlife sculptor and gallerist Ken Rowe seeks to demystify the process when he steps into the spotlight on Friday, October 7. Ken, who prefers to sculpt from live animal models, will demonstrate his process with the help of a surprise guest from Runnin’ W Wildlife Center, a non-profit rescue and rehabilitation center based in Cornville. . “Will our model have fur or feathers?” Ken speculates. “You will have to come and see to find out.

The sculpture demonstration begins in the courtyard outside the gallery at 4 p.m. sharp. Arrive early to reserve the best seats. Ken will be sculpting until 5:30 p.m. At the reception that follows, see Ken’s creation up close and chat with the artist. The evening ends at 7 p.m.

To benefit Runnin’ W and his vital contribution to northern Arizona wildlife, The Rowe Fine Art Gallery will donate 10% of sales of a sculpture chosen by Ken to the organization that night only. It’s the perfect time to expand your art collection and make a difference in your community.
