Awards for The Beggar and The Thinker


The Beggar

A second place award went to The Beggar at the New Braunfels Art League Gallery exhibition Art in the Hills. Landa King, Chair of the Department of Visual Arts Texas Lutheran University, was the juror.  She commented:

Sensitive to the wood, in this case Mesquite wood, the viewer feels the weight of the beggar as possibly the beggar bears the weight of the World.  Beautiful execution of “oneness” between the sculptor and the medium.

The Thinker

The Thinker earned a second place award at the 2014 Texas Society of Sculptors/Georgetown Public Library.  The juror, Kris Whitfield President of the Round Rock Arts Council, stated:

The tipping of the hat and the expression on the face makes him look deep in thought.  I love the elongated neck and arms which is such a contrast to Rodin’s ‘The Thinker’.
