International Recognition

“Aphrodite” by Bren Sibilsky.

Bren Sibilsky, an Algoma sculptor and painter, was recently selected for the third time as a finalist in the International Arc Salon 2015 Art Competition. The Arc Salon is undoubtedly the most prestigious collection of artists in the entire world. To be listed among them is truly a measure of the high quality work that Sibilsky produces year after year. In 2006, her work titled “Aphrodite” was chosen as a finalist among more than 1,600 entries. Her 2013 work titled “Pride of Friesland” was chosen as a finalist in this world-wide show with more than 2,000 entries. Sibilsky’s 2015 work is titled “Fishers of Men.” This year’s show had more than 3,000 participants. The sculpture is in clay and will be cast into bronze.

Sibilsky’s current focus is on several commissions and planning for the fourth annual “lost wax” bronze casting class at The Algoma Atelier of Sculpture and Art (her newly remodeled teaching facility) with professional instructors Ken and Mary Davidson July 27 to Aug. 1.

Sibilsky’s studio/gallery, located at E5977 Fremont Rd in Algoma, is open 10 am – 5 pm Friday through Monday, May through November. For more information visit
