Sedona AZ (July 19, 2016) – Never one to rest on his laurels, Ken Rowe will once again participate in the esteemed Society of Animal Artists’ annual exhibition, which happens Sept. 23 through Jan. 1, 2017 at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. Ken’s bronze elk bust titled Nobility was selected for the 56th annual exhibit. The sculpture was also chosen for the society’s Art and the Animal Tour, which begins Jan. 21, 2017 at the Hiram Blauvelt Art Museum in New Jersey.
Ken’s sculptures have been juried into nine Society of Animal Artists annual exhibitions since his first show in 2006. His work has been selected for seven Art and the Animal tours since 2006. This is the first time Ken has participated in the exhibition since 2013, and Ken says being chosen by the jury is an honor. “To my knowledge, the Society of Animal Artists is the only society of wildlife artists in existence in this country,” he says. He submitted Nobility, which made its debut in Sedona last November, for several reasons.
“Nobility is one of my newer sculptures, and it’s an accessible size, which is why I submitted it to the Society of Animal Artists,” says Ken. “I sculpted this particular bull elk in May 2015 near Jackson Hole, Wyoming, when I was teaching a class in Yellowstone National Park. The bull was laying down – he was very noble looking, hence the title.”
Nobility is on display at Rowe Fine Art Gallery in Sedona. For inquiries, please contact the gallery.
