ArtBreak: West Michigan Area Show Artist Highlight

June 18 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Hybrid Hybrid Event

Join us for an artist’s talk and live demonstration with Jeffrey Bohl, whose sculpture Ellie is featured in the 2024 West Michigan Area Show!

Bohl has been creating bronze sculptures for over 16 years, exhibiting along the way in numerous regional competitions and in several individual shows. He pours most of his bronzes in his own backyard, using foundry equipment he has designed and built himself. He creates sculptures by assemblage, first creating various hollow wax forms, then looking for relationships between those individual shapes and assembling them into compelling larger forms. Bohl tends toward light-hearted figurative work and has been creating animal forms for the last few years. His work is represented by J. Petter Gallery in Saugatuck.

Be sure to stop by the West Michigan Area Show before June 24 to cast your vote for the People’s Choice Award! The winner of this award, sponsored by the Arts Council of Great Kalamazoo, will be announced during Art Hop on Friday, July 12, at 6:00 pm.

All hybrid events will be livestreamed to our YouTube page and can be found under the “Live” tab. Recordings of select past events are available on YouTube as well. No registration is necessary in order to join in virtually.
