Artist Talk-George Rammell - Miniature Boxwood to Monumental BronzeBill Reid Gallery
Saturday, October 17, 2020, 1 - 2pm
This is a socially distanced, in-person talk at the Gallery.
How did Bill Reid combine Indigenous methods of working with western sculpture processes? Join artist George Rammell for a presentation on the making of the monumental bronze sculpture Chief of the Undersea World. George worked with Bill for over 10 years and will share behind-the-scenes stories and detailed images of the creation process. George saw how Bill’s studio practice was rooted in Haida jewelry and carving methodologies, and how he defined a seamless fusion of Western sculptural technology with Haida sensibilities.
