Deborah Dendler, local sculptor and resident of Fish Creek, is exhibiting a bronze sculpture at the Academic Artists Association 65th National Exhibition of Contemporary Realism in Vernon, Connectictut from May 3 – 23. Dendler’s sculpture won the Academic Artists 2015 Excellence Award for Sculpture. In April, Dendler’s bronze sculpture “Attitude” was selected for the Focus on Figures 2015 Exhibition in Marshfield, Massachusetts. Also in April, Dendler exhibited terra-cotta sculptures at the North Colorado Arts Association Spring Forward Exhibition in Fort Collins, Colorado, winning an Honorable Mention Award for sculpture.
