Today we were happy to have a visit from the artist Sharon Spencer, who came from Washington to Artworks Foundry for the final patina on some of her pieces.
Sharon’s early work reflected her intense fascination with Native American and Eskimo cultures, affirming her respect for animals and the earth through her figurative sculpture. This thematic thread is constant throughout her work as it evolves into varying scale and different media, which range from large outdoor commissioned abstract pieces to simple, minimalist figurative sculpture.
Sharon’s art has been featured in Galleries and numerous private collections throughout the United States, Canada, Japan and Europe. She has received countless awards of excellence in juried major exhibitions and shows. Her sculpture captures the fragility of existence, and communicates a joyous affirmation of life, speaking quietly and powerfully to the heart.
