Bronze Sculpture by Bart Walter

July 20 - September 28, 1997


Bart Walter of Westminster, Maryland is a renowned sculptor who has extensive experience with working in both wood and bronze. His distinctive approach to surface, gesture and range of subject have brought him international recognition.

The wildlife sculptures in bronze range from the delicate North American hummingbird to the massive physique of the male African Silver-back Gorilla. Mr. Walter's work has been exhibited in numerous solo exhibitions including the Reading Public Museum in Pennsylvania in 1993; the Saginaw Museum of Art in Michigan; and the A.G. Poulain Municipal Museum in Vernon, France in 1996. Many of the works exhibited in the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts have been displayed abroad.

This exhibition also includes several of the artist's studies in charcoal to further interpret the process and subject.
