Here’s your chance to meet Sculpture Walk Artist, Charlie Brouwer!

Here’s your chance to meet Sculpture Walk Artist, Charlie Brouwer!

Have you seen his wood sculptures around Kingsport?? Or maybe you saw the Kingsport Ladder Project?

Artist Talk begins at 10 am on Saturday, Oct. 13th entitled “Playing Outside: One artist’s journey into the world of public art.” Thank you to the Friends of the Library for allowing this to take place at the Kingsport Public Library.

For 25 years Charlie Brouwer was an “indoor artist.” Over the past 15 years outdoor sculptures and public art have become a major part of his practice. His talk will be about why and how this happened.

Sculpture Walk XI begins with a reception with Mike Roig!

Sculpture Walk XI takes on a new form with sculpture talks and hands on sculpture workshops. Rolling out as a series, the sculptures for Sculpture Walk XI will be installed separately over several months. The first of which will be installed on September 28, followed by a sculpture talk and workshop.

The artist for the first two sculptures of the walk is Mike Roig. Mike’s pieces are often kinetic – moving effortlessly with the wind, providing great interest. They are expertly wrought in stainless, industrial steel and other durable materials. Mike will install two pieces on Friday, September 28. ‘Moondance’ will be installed in the Ridgefields Circle and ‘Aerial’ will be installed in Downtown Kingsport. Mike lives and works in Carrboro, NC where he and his wife, author-artist Clay Carmichael, maintain the Heartworks Studio.

On Friday, September 28 the Office of Cultural Arts invites the public to a reception and talk with artist Mike Roig. The reception will begin at 5:30 p.m. and the talk will begin at 6:00 p.m. in the auditorium of the Kingsport Public Library – after 5:30, please enter from the Shelby Street parking lot.
