Opening Reception with the Artist
Saturday, November 18th 7-10pm
RSVP Required at www.ao5billmack2017.eventbrite.com
World renowned sculptor Bill Mack will be visiting Austin for the very first time! Based in Minneapolis, Bill Mack began his career as a commissioned artist, creating commemorative medallion bas-reliefs such as the Bicentennial medals for the State of Minnesota, and the cities of St. Louis and Baltimore. He later transitioned to the creation of highly elevated alto-reliefs, as well as full-round sculpture.
Today he is internationally known for composite stone and cast metal sculptures in which highly dynamic figures threaten to escape the bond of their frames. He has exhibited in galleries from New York to Beverly Hills, Tokyo, and Frankfurt. His portrait reliefs occupy a prestigious place in many major national collections including the Cowboy Hall of Fame, Figure Skating Hall of Fame, and the Statue of Liberty National Monument collection on Liberty Island. Mack further explores the meaning of fame and celebrity with his portraits of memorable actors and actresses on authentic panels from the original Hollywood Sign.
Don’t miss your chance to meet this elusive and enigmatic art world personality, only at ART on 5th!
This exhibition will be on display through Wednesday, December 6th
