Live sculpting event set for Incline Village art studio
INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — Cobalt Artist Studio in Incline Village will showcase the artistry and talents of internationally recognized bronze artist and local resident June Towill Brown on Saturday, June 11, from 4-6 p.m.
Brown — well known for the bronze sculptures she created that are displayed within the Incline Gateway Roundabout — will offer a live sculpting demonstration and reception at the studio at 230 Village Blvd.
Brown’s work is currently represented at Village Interiors, located in Christmas Tree Village. Select bronze sculptures are also on display at the new artist loft gallery at the Incline Village/Crystal Bay Visitors Center.
Her artistry will also be on display at Cobalt Artists Studio through July 31st.
“I am excited and honored to showcase my work alongside the many other local artists who now call Cobalt Artist Studio home,” Brown said in a news release. “I enjoy the opportunity to do a live sculpting demonstration and give a sneak peak of my next bronze in the making.”
During Saturday’s two-hour sculpting demonstration, the studio welcomes guests to ask questions, watch Brown in action, and touch and feel the clay that is similar to what she used to sculpt the eight bronze statues within the Highway 28/431 roundabout.
Brown’s collections can be seen throughout North America and range from the mystical and magical to small maquettes and life-sized commissioned work — which includes the sculptures at the roundabout.
