SIX SHOWS ANNOUNCED, ONE ENDS
New events – some of which were delightful surprises and others that were planned – help fill the schedule. For more information about each event including maps, please visit the Events page.
One surprise “show” is virtual. Rebecca Wilson, a director at Saatchi Gallery, chose two of Kevin’s sculptures, CounterSink and Bou, for a collection that was featured on the prestigious gallery’s Saatchi Online homepage. You can see the show at http://bit.ly/saatchiol.
Additional events include :
- June 7 (Friday) – August 30 (Friday), Phoenix, Arizona – Some of Kevin’s new work, including Dorothy’s Nightmare (left) and CounterSink, will be featured in “Thermal PHX” at MonOrchid, one of downtown Phoenix’s best galleries.
- September 6 (Friday) – October 26 (Saturday), Chandler, Arizona – The solo show “Micro/Macro: The Sculptural Art of Kevin Caron” at the Chandler Center for the Arts will focus on the convertible nature of much of Kevin’s work. “Some people will look at a piece like Cosmos and see a universe, while others see a molecule,” Kevin says.
- November 21 – 24, November 29 – December 1, Scottsdale, Arizona – The end of the year brings Hidden in the Hills, a six-day show in the Cave Creek/Carefree/north Scottsdale area. Kevin will be showing his sculpture as well as works from his home and garden line at BH Bowman Studios in north Scottsdale. “I’m excited about the other artists I’m showing with and the beautiful location,” says Kevin.
- September 5, 2014 (Friday) – March 1, 2015 (Sunday), Winchester, Virginia – Kevin’s sculpture Mustang Sally will be one of 270 sculptures, chosen from 1,000 created as part of the Landfillart project, in the show Second Time Around: The Hubcap as Art. The exhibition will debut at the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley, in Winchester, Virginia. In 2015, Mustang Sally will then go on the road as part of a national exhibition of 35 works from this show.

Finally, the show “The Organic Edge: Kevin Caron and Annie Waters” closed at the end of April after a successful two-month run at the beautiful Yuma Arts Center. Cosmos will come back to Phoenix and be installed in its new owners’ Scottsdale yard. “The footer is poured and awaiting it,” Kevin says.

FREE ARTS STUDIO VISIT AND BENEFIT AUCTION WARM HEARTS
As part of his dedication to his community, Kevin has been working with Free Arts for Abused Children of Arizona. “This is a great organization that helps kids who will really benefit from the healing and creative aspects of art,” says Kevin.
Last year, he contributed a sculpture for the group’s annual auction.
This year, in addition to donating Copernicus to the auction, Kevin hosted a workshop for eight teens from Sunshine Acres Children’s Home on March 20. “They had a lot of energy!” Kevin observes.
They also were remarkably creative, crafting a half-dozen sculptures in just three hours. “I tried to let them do whatever work they could do themselves,” Kevin says. The kids displayed their sculptures at the auction, too, a rare opportunity for budding artists.
PROJECTS UNDER WAY IN THE STUDIO
With two important sculptures – Dorothy’s Nightmare and Charged Particle (right) – completed, Kevin is focusing on Cosmography, the large sculpture in the spirit of Cosmos. “The sculpture now has its geometric elements – the cube, square, triangle and point – and I am working on the base and finish work before it gets its patina,” Kevin explains. Keep an eye on its development on its own Web page.
Also under way are new ocotillos and Shitake Agaves for the Sonoran Art League’s Hidden in the Hills studio tour. “These sculptures are particularly interesting to people who live in the desert and know these or similar plants,” Kevin explains.
“I’m also working on some new versions of the Street Urchin form,” says Kevin. “It really resonates with people – including me!”
Finally, Kevin has been pleased to have the assistance of two interns, Claire and Sharon, in the studio. “They both work very hard,” Kevin says. “I enjoy teaching them some of the things I’ve learned and appreciate the assistance.”

NEW IN VIDEO
Setting a new standard, Channel Kevin topped 6,000 subscribers this month. “Who’d have ever thought I’d be able to help so many people,” Kevin says.
Among his recent videos is the beginning of a series about his new 3D printer. “I’ve been watching the prices on these amazing devices come down to where I could afford one,” says Kevin. “As an artist, I’m already using it to create maquettes [small models], but I’m also creating original work. I’m excited to see where this is heading …. “
