Sculptors, artists and interested spectators are invited to watch molten bronze transform into a work of art at The Algoma Atelier of Sculpture and Art, a division of Bren Sibilsky Sculpture. The bronze pour takes place on Oct. 12 and coincides with the annual Art Studio Tour.
Bren Sibilsky will host a weeklong bronze casting class from Oct. 8 – 13, culminating in the bronze pour. The class features all aspects of the traditional lost wax process combined with contemporary technology. Students will create their own original wax sculpture, make a custom mold and pour their own bronze.
Class instructors will be Ken and Mary Davidson of Davidson Artworks. Mary’s education includes a MAT from Tulane University and an MFA from Vermont College of Visual Arts. The Davidsons are experienced teachers and renowned sculptors with numerous bronze commissions throughout the United States, such as a recent project for the City of Biloxi to commemorate the city’s tri-centennial.
Sibilsky has converted the 100-year old farmstead into a working atelier (school/studio) and gallery. She is an award-winning, full-time, international sculptor and teacher with many works in private and public collections worldwide.
