Sculptor to discuss his work at Sparkle Barn
WALLINGFORD — Sculptor Peter Lundberg will speak on his experience as an artist and share slides of his work on June 14, in the first of three summer art lectures scheduled at The Sparkle Barn.
"Art brings passion to any endeavor," Lundberg said. "When we take the time to make beautiful or thoughtful things, this activity resonates throughout our lives. As a 58 year old sculptor, I cannot escape the things I have made, the children I have witnessed playing on my sculptures, nor the praise and blame for my work. The passion reaches both heights and lows. People love my work, people hate my work. Some don't even see the work, but if they do, it usually garners a lively reaction, one way or the other.
"I build sculptures around the globe and then return to my home in Vermont. I get to enjoy the making of the sculpture, but not living with them. I speak with many school children of all ages and often return to find them inspired to do great things. This is my greatest reward as an artist." Lundberg holds a bachelor's degree in mathematics from Skidmore College and a master's of fine arts in sculpture from Bennington College.
