Above the Clouds - Art of the Alpine
This will be my first opportunity to show my work at the National Museum of Wildlife Art ... & What an incredible honor it is to share my passion for our natural world through the voice of low relief sculpture!
Wonderful news indeed! Thank you for being part of my creative journey! JD
Ridge Fire Refuge's sculpture dialogue reads:
“This sculpture is a reflection upon the resilience of mountain bighorn sheep that are displaced from their alpine homes by fast moving fires which year to year sweep through our high country here in Colorado - forcing these powerful and tenacious creatures from their rocky ridgeline fastnesses.
It is a work that manifests alpine animals in their fight for survival against insurmountable and unforgiving shifts in our ever-changing world - and through it I also seek to address the broader realities of displacement in times of turmoil as well as the fortitude and flexibility that is required to endure against formidable odds.” JDW
