BBCW Artist in Residence: Jeff Rudolph
Award-winning sculptor Jeff Rudolph joins us as Artist-in-Residence in the Whitney Western Art Museum August 29–September 3, 9 a.m.–3:30 p.m. each day. He will be demonstrating his technique and chatting with visitors, sharing his process.
Jeff is a native of Cody, Wyoming, and growing up in the West allowed his imagination to ran wild. He says, “I developed a strong love for the rugged terrain of Wyoming. My knowledge of art began in my dad’s carpenter shop. It was there I observed the beauty of wood, and the satisfaction that comes from modeling a natural material.”
My purpose,” Jeff adds, “is to evoke through sculpting an emotion, a spirit, or a feeling that others can relate to. From the glory of the soaring eagle, to the tenderness of the timid cottontail, to the tragedy and nobility of mankind.”
Jeff has won several regional and national awards, and is one of the artists featured in the annual Buffalo Bill Art Show & Sale. His work can be seen at various galleries throughout the western United States, and is also in the collection of the Center’s of the West’s Whitney Western Art Museum.
