Hoosier Sculptor Offers Prize For Arts Awards
Recipients of the 2013 Governor’s Arts Awards will walk away with a piece of art. Indiana Public Broadcasting’s Jill Sheridan reports on the work being done by one Indiana sculptor.
Working with stone isn’t easy. One of the most difficult mediums, stone sculptors face numerous challenges, but William Galloway is an expert. Tackling the job of creating awards for the 40th annual Governor’s Arts Awards, Galloway has been sculpting Indiana limestone since the 1980’s. With artistic freedom, Galloway says the awards are based on the spires he carved for the National Cathedral.
Growing up in southern part of the state, Galloway has long been inspired by the landscape and Indiana limestone…. He comments that stone was ‘green’ long before anyone knew what that meant.
The Indiana Arts Commission will present the awards this fall at the Carmel Center for the Performing Arts. For Indiana Public Broadcasting, I’m Jill Sheridan.
