Karen Wilberding’s Pecore
The artist Karen Wilberding Diefenbach is opening a new show “The Pecore: recent Sculpture” in San Francisco. The collection was inspired by the enduring sheep, acting both a tribute to Italy’s tradition and a meditation on time, nature and change.
The exhibition will be placed at the Italian Cultural Institute of San Francisco, from November 1 until December 14.
“The Pecore” shows also Karen’s latest bronze sculptures cast at Artworks Foundry. Here you can see a video filmed at the Foundry and where she explains the lost wax casting process.
