A new project and an upcoming show occupy Kevin’s time. Here’s what’s happening:
Let’s go ….
A NEW PUBLIC COMMISSION IS UNDER WAY
|A rendering of The Seed
Kevin has been commissioned by the city of Chandler, Arizona, to create a new public art sculpture.
“I’m very honored to be selected to create this sculpture for the city of Chandler and its citizens,” says Kevin.
The sculpture, which is named The Seed, will be placed in the multistory lobby of Chandler’s $12.6 million Tumbleweed Recreation Center, which has an indoor running track, basketball courts, and a fitness center, among other amenities.
Kevin has begun the 14-foot tall sculpture, which will be made of aluminum.
“This will be a major project in the studio for a while,” he says.
Watch The Seed develop on its own page.
SHOW SLATED FOR FEBRUARY IN DOWNTOWN PHOENIX
Kevin’s work will be featured in a show in Phoenix in February 2012. “It’s just around the corner,” he observes.

The show will also include the paintings of Annie Waters and charcoal drawings of Catherine Ruane, whose work, like Kevin’s, has an organic feel.
The show will be held in the Olney Gallery in Trinity Cathedral, located in the heart of downtown Phoenix’s arts district. It runs February 3rd ? 27th. The first reception is February 3 (which coincides with Phoenix’s First Friday street fair) and the second is February 17 (during Phoenix’s Third Friday). Each gathering will be held from 6:00 – 9:30 p.m.
If you’re in the Valley, please mark your calendar now for one of these receptions. We look forward to seeing you there.

PROJECTS UNDER WAY IN THE STUDIO
Kevin’s current major focus in the studio is The Seed, the public art sculpture for Chandler’s Tumbleweed Recreation Center.
He is shaping and welding the front and back panels of the “sluice,” which is the main part of the sculpture.
“I’m moving along methodically,” Kevin says.
You can watch the sculpture’s progress on its own page.
Kevin also continues to work on the as-yet-untitled sculpture inspired by Mobilus. “I like to work on a couple of pieces at a time,” he says. “This helps me stay fresh, or get a break if I get stuck on one aspect of a sculpture. Then I can come back to it with fresh eyes.”
This particular sculpture has developed slowly. An inner, solid mobius strip, which spins, is now installed.
