Coming from California in April 2015: Internationally recognized sculptor Vance Balter.
Vance works in different media, but especially finds beauty in gnarly wood. A finished piece can reflect hundreds of hours of careful work. An ever-expanding portfolio includes the use of wood, concrete, stone, agates, gems, and oil paint. Balter's sculptures have been exhibited in numerous prestigious galleries on the U.S. west coast inclucing the Center on Contemporary Art in Seattle. Recently he was Featured Artist at the Morris Graves Museum of Art in Eureka, CA. His work can be seen online at www.artisancarvings.com
