Talent in our midst

The Snapdragon Inn

I continue to marvel at the talent that abides in our little town of aproximately 3,700 (not sure on the exact number). This past week N8 and I were in the studio of sculptor, Lawrence J Nowlan right here in town. He is currently working an impressively large piece for his hometown, Philadelphia, of legendary Philies broadcastor, Harry Kalas. He has been working full time on this project in his main street church-converted studio since Thanksgiving.

As it reads on his website, "He came to his interest in sculpture through a chance encounter with the works of Auguste Rodin in Philadelphia." As you take in his studio, the beauty of a Rodin is evident but Nowlan has a style unique to himself. In 1995 the artist was invited to serve as the Artist in Residence at the Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site, in Cornish, NH right across the river from Windsor and has kept a studio in the area ever since. His list of clients is varied from local work to co-creating the VH1 My Music award in 2001 among many many others.

Relief work

A peruse of his website and you'll see what I mean. Yesterday when I was in there, he was working on a Bas Relief for the in University of California that incredible to watch as he created something where there was nothing. His studio is like a museum/graveyard of sculptures, busts, and reliefs (even a Relief that was commissioned for Oprah and a Death Mask of Lincoln's face).
So exciting to have such incredible talent in our town.

You can become a fan of his studio on facebook and take a closer look at pictures showing his the progress of his recent Kalas project. Take a moment and check out his site, it's impressive.
