Bren Sibilsky, an articulate and passionate internationally recognized sculptor and painter, will be the featured presenter for this month’s Second Thursday program at the Miller Art Museum. Sibilsky will discuss and demonstrate her technique with a live sculpture demonstration at the museum on Sept. 8 beginning at 4 pm, located in the Door County Library in Sturgeon Bay. The program is free and open to the public.
Having worked in the art field for more than 20 years, her current focus is sculpture in the style of classical realism with emotional undertones. Her artwork is the reflection of her interests in nature and realism.
“My work is a study in understanding universal emotion,” she said. “…Using symbolism and the phenomena of nature, I seek to create works with permanent messages. We can find truth in nature, especially when it is charged with emotional energy like love. As a student of life I work with the alchemy of sculpture, forever amazed by the magic of nature. It is through empathy for this world that we can truly understand the ways of love and the laws of nature.”
Sibilsky maintains a studio/gallery – the Algoma Atelier of Sculpture and Art – on a 20-acre farm in rural Algoma with her husband Randy.
Miller Art Museum is located at 107 South 4th Avenue in Sturgeon Bay. For more information about the Second Thursday program series, visit millerartmuseum.org.
