Outdoor Sculpture Locations:

I have my larger outdoor sculptures at several public art locations where they will be shown for a year.

I have a sculpture in Round Rock hanging from a tree by the downtown library.

Two of my sculptures are in the Cedar Park Sculpture Garden and will be up through sometime in October, at which time I will replace them with two different sculptures.

Three pieces are in Jewett, TX as part of the Leon County Art Trails.

Three sculptures are in Palestine, TX as part of Art Tracks.

In Bastrop, are 2 transformers that i painted last summer. They are located by the movie theatre. You can see them by entering the parking lot and drive toward the back of the movie theatre on the east side toward Farm St.

An interesting thing that I found out a few years ago is that I have several ancestors who were metal workers. I have always considered myself primarily a sculptor, although I created mostly 2-D art for a while.  I worked in clay for a number of years and then started migrating to metal.  I enjoy what it can do.  Now that I found out there were 2 tinsmiths, a blacksmith, and also a tailor in my ancestry (I’ve been doing a metal quilt series), it seems that I’m following a path that was set in motion a while back. (?)  I wonder what kind of things they made.

I am always struggling to add to Facebook ....my first art page is:  https://www.facebook.com/TwinCreekStudio.Laura-Sturtz/
