1. Rusted Melody II
Alex Mendez // Decatur, IN
Mendez is both a sculptor and working musician who is drawn to abstract forms believing he can provide visual sculpted art through music. Through his efforts to master concept, design, sculpting and installation, Mendez creates a progression of his musical and artistic abilities. “Rusted Melody II” has a natural patina that mimics the natural wood of an acoustic guitar. This sculpture pays tribute to his musical roots.

2. Fallen Sky
Coral Lambert // Alfred, NY
“Fallen Sky” explores the force of nature and seeks to address issues related to Earth’s resources. By bringing the sky to Earth, Lambert creates an experience that resonates with the viewer in both a physical and a mindful way. Through this sculpture, the artist invites a dialogue with the public to develop their own interpretation about materials, resources and natural phenomena, e.g. a section of the sky as a fossil.

Luke Achterberg // Onalaska, WI
Achterberg’s work explores the relationship between fine art and the subcultures of Americana found in automotive customization, calligraphy, graffiti and street art. The artist continually plays with physical and aesthetic balance to create a visual smoothness and sleekness called “Super Sleek.” “Incendiary” explores the counterweight and cantilever of shape, line and color to to create a lyrical sculpture.

4. Sunrise/Sunset (Sawblade)
Matthew Duffy // Washington, DC
Duffy practices project-based art or rather, he creates works that vary aesthetically, thematically and technically instead of seeking inspiration in the traditional sense. As a fabricator as well as a sculptor, he has honed his visual skills in cutting-edge technology which allows him to replicate universally understood objects or symbols, such as “Sawblade,” in larger-than-life scale.

Bobby Joe Scribner // Woodstock, IL
The sculpture “Moonshine” evokes a sense of wonder, delight and whimsey. Through fabricated steel elements, he addresses his deep family roots in middle Tennessee. Curiosity and an open mind fuels his desire to layer meanings he incorporates into his public sculptures.

6. Lil' Blue
Nathan Pierce // Cape Girardeau, MO
The surprise that we get from seeing out of the ordinary things in ordinary places activates our imagination and helps us to see the world differently. In today’s social landscape we continually find ourselves in the midst of growth and change, and this momentum towards a better world is sometimes frustrating and exciting. As an artist, my intention is to help bring awareness to our surroundings and create an opportunity to reimagine our sense of place. By highlighting the significance of communication through abstract sculptural form, my work sparks the imagination of viewers and helps lead communities to engage in more meaningful and effective conversations.

7. Cosmic Orange Spiral, 8 Arm Smooth Spiral Composition & Galactic Yellow Pearl, 7 Arm Facet Spiral Composition
Orion Richey // Creve Coeur, IL
As the Sculptor Orion Richey, I created Orion Sculptures which I call Orion Spirals. My vision is to create rigid spiral sculptures – strong enough to withstand the outdoors yet elegant enough to beautify the interior living space. My sculptures are displayed outdoors in gardens, landscaped yards, urban environments and indoors. I make sculpture by cutting spiral patterns from plate steel then fabricate, machine, weld and paint. Dynamically fabricated then powder coat painted, Orion Sculptures is creative metalwork that discovers and shows the elegance and beauty of the Multi-Arm SPIRAL.

8. My Pi
John Adduci // Chicago, IL
Classic iconography has always inspired Adduci’s work. “My Pi,” from the original connotation, melds the ancient with the contemporary, as it is playful, wry, and even cartoonish. “‘My Pi’ is proof that 3.14 is sure to advance into the future!” Adduci’s fabrication in aluminum, is a sculpture that matches aesthetics with longevity.

9. Depth of Form
Jacob Burmood // Kansas City, MO
Becoming part of the interwoven complexities that work in conjunction with nature gives Burmood a sense of harmony and simplicity which is the basis for the artist’s inspiration. “Depth of Form” is part of a series of experiments capturing unseen forces, like gravity, pressure and tension. The organic forms emphasize the state of change from liquid to solid, displaying flowing movement.
