In this afternoon workshop sculptor Bruce Campbell will guide participants in twisting and joining wire to create whimsical animal sculptures.

In 1976, after seeing a Calder retrospective, Campbell was inspired to start working with wire as an artistic medium. He soon developed his own practice of making wire animal sculptures, which kept him occupied during his train commute into New York City. The tools and materials Campbell brought with him on the train eventually outweighed his other luggage. Campbell’s work was recently exhibited at Brattleboro’s Mitchell Giddings Fine Art.

Workshop participants must bring their own eye protection, needle nose pliers, round nose pliers, and cutting pliers. Wire will be provided.

ADMISSION: $65 ($55 for BMAC members)
Ages 16 and up. Space is limited.
