The exhibitbition includes their first creations completed over 25 years ago with nearly 50 progressive works in an evolutionary time line to the present day including a free standing life-size figure of an Indian Chief, standing on a rock, holding up a buffalo skull. The piece is 10′ high and was just completed for the exhibition. Subjects are primarily Western Art and Wildlife but also include military, use of color and some 2 dimensional works. Most of the pieces are sizable but at least three are monumental in size. There will be hands on examples of their hand made acid free paper and casts as well as video documentation of their lives and works and video demonstrations of their process.
