SCULPTURE


T he Allure of

Original Art Dear Collector, We are pleased to present the all-new Wild Wings Original Art Collection featuring the works of America’s premier nature, sporting and western artists. The following pages showcase exceptional artwork ranging from classic sporting art and woodland scenes to cheerful songbirds and western ranch life. This year’s collection also features a greatly-expanded selection of magnificent original sculptures for impressive tabletop and bookshelf display. It is highly satisfying to acquire a one-of-a-kind original creation, knowing that the artist personally applied brush strokes to the painting or hands and tools to the sculpture. Owning an original work of art means owning a very intimate and personal expression of the artist’s creative process. Wild Wings has a long history of bringing high quality original artwork to discerning collectors beginning with our very first catalog more than 45 years ago. Today as then, many of the artists we represent are pleased to accept personal commissions for paintings or sculpture to be created just for you. Should you be interested in acquiring an original work of art from this catalog, or in making arrangements for a commissioned piece, please contact: Kerrie Wells at 651-345-6076 or via email at kerrie.wells@wildwings.com.

We look forward to serving you!

Jewels from Within – Triptych

m i x e d m e di a b y K a ra Yo u n g “In 1991 my house and studio burned to the ground in Oakland, California. It was considered the largest urban fire in history. When going back to the site to dig up copper I had in the studio, it inspired me to fire copper in a wood-burning stove to create brilliant colors. I had witnessed the remains, the jewels were the first pieces that I used this dynamic fired copper to create the “Light from Within.”

I appreciate the bright blue bills and iridescent black and purple heads of the bluebill – quite eye catching and unique!”
