Announcing the artists for the Macon Sculpture Walk
On December 1, four sculptures will be revealed in downtown Macon. These sculptures will be on display for one year, available to the public to enjoy. (For you art lovers, they’ll also be available for sale.)
Come party with the artists on November 29 at Travis Jean Emporium.
The artists were juried against their peers from Georgia and across the U.S. Let us say, there were some incredible sculptures submitted for display.
And now… the artists! Greg Mendez, Alex Mendez, and Nathan Pierce have been selected to display their artwork in downtown Macon.
About the Artists
Greg was raised in the rural town of Decatur, IN. He studied at the University of St. Francis School of Creative Arts in Ft. Wayne, IN graduating with a B.F.A. in sculpture. Greg’s sculptures have been included in many juried public displays throughout the United States, and he has been the recipient of numerous awards.
Alex was raised in Decatur, IN. (Yes, Greg and Alex are brothers.) His love of music influences his artwork today. Alex studied music at Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne. When he’s not in the workshop creating art, you can most likely find him with his guitar.
Son of a stone-mason, Nathan’s father taught him the value of craftmanship. The abstract contemporary forms of Nathan Pierce's public art installations are softly rooted in the notion of technology and communication, and the role that it plays in everyday life. His sculptures, no matter the surrounding landscape, offer a counterpoint to the viewers perception of place and time.
You can meet the artists, and get a sneak-peak of the sculptures before they’re displayed on November 29 at Travis Jean Emporium.
