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.
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.
