Master Sculptor Andew DeVries Hosts Casting Demonstration

August 31 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$25.00

Award-winning master sculptor Andrew DeVries will demonstrate the ancient process of lost wax bronze casting at four Saturday afternoon Open Studios on May 25, June 22, August 31 and October 12 at River Studios, 42 East River Road. Recognized worldwide for his depiction of ballet dancers, DeVries captures the pure grace and essence of their movement. He is among a handful of artists in the US who not only create and design, but actually cast their own works in bronze.

What You Will See

At each event, DeVries will execute a bronze casting, explaining millennia-old techniques and revealing a sculpture’s journey from an original clay model through its transformation into a vibrant bronze expression of the artist’s vision. Afterwards, attendees may take a leisurely guided Sculpture Trail tour of the more than 40 bronze works installed throughout the property’s wildflower meadow and shady groves. Poetry by a variety of writers complement the pieces, adding to the contemplative experience. The tour finishes in the DeVries Fine Art International gallery culminating with an unveiling of DeVries’ latest creation.
