These furry friends are eager to see one of their favorite people, the veterinarian! Yes, it can mean a few pokes and prods, but a visit to the clinic brings a lot of treats and ear rubs too. An introductory offer is now available for Craig Campbell's "Vet Visit" in two sizes, 9" or 26" high.
Pictured here in clay, the cat and dog pair will be cast in limited edition museum-quality bronze.
Know a vet that could use this piece?? customize the label on the cushion in gratitude for a favorite animal care-giver or clinic.
Gary Miller at work in the studio of the home he built with his wife Tammie in the mountains west of Fort Collins, Colorado. Gary has documented this painting from its beginning. It is about 80% complete at the point shown here.... when he sends all the photos we will post them here.
In the meantime, you can preorder this painting here. It will ship directly from the studio once dry.
New pieces are underway at NSG Fellow Sandy Scott's studio. She rarely slows down creating new work, and we aren't surprised that the health crisis isn't stopping her.
The pieces shown here in clay can be pre-ordered from our special section on our online store. These are listed with introductory pricing, with a $400 savings! so, it's truly a great time to add this renowned wildlife artist to your collection, if you are able.
Sandy's foundry in Lander, WY is currently open at a reduced staff, so please expect 8-12 weeks for the bronze casting time from the time of your order. With your Sales Code "PREORDER", shipping is free!
"Dos Amigos", and "Earitated" speak to our little Springtime buddies that I'm sure you're all seeing hopping about yards.
"Dos Amigos" 11 1/2 W x 7 1/2 D x 12 H - size includes oval walnut base; Ed/50. click here to purchase
"Earitated" 9 3/4 W x 6 1/2 D x 6 H - size includes oval walnut base; Ed/50. click here to purchase
"The New Puppy". The narrative speaks for itself . . . it is an old dog laying next to a new puppy that's asleep. Trish and I got a new Scottish Terrier puppy 3 weeks ago and we have an old bird dog. While the breeds are not the same as the sculpture . . . the sentiment is. Maybe many of you have new pups during this Stay-At-Home time and can relate.
"The New Puppy" 13 1/2 W x 7 1/2 D x 4 3/4 H - size includes oval walnut base. Ed/50. click here to purchase

What happens when you have an engineer/artist dad (Joe Norman), a bright young girl and a 3D printer to make prototypes during a stay-in-place order? Construct a icosahedron fort! What an awesome homeschool project!!
We've got our eyes on Abby, she's going places already. Also, I want a play day in that fort!
From Joe: "Attached are some photos of me and Abby learning about icosahedrons and building her new fort in the backyard, after prototyping it with 3D printed sockets we designed that fit Q-tips as structural members. We then used 2x4's and door hinges to make the full size version."
In geometry, an icosahedron is a polyhedron with 20 faces. The name comes from Ancient Greek εἴκοσι, meaning 'twenty', and ἕδρα, meaning 'seat'. There are infinitely many non-similar shapes of icosahedra, some of them being more symmetrical than others.
"I am trying to keep my students painting while we cannot physically get together. For April, we had an assignment to paint one subject three times with different lighting. Below are my three examples.
If you like any of these paintings, they are also available in our new preorder section of the store.
For the month of May we are going to paint a white on white subject of your choice.
Anyone is welcome to join in! I will critique paintings if anyone needs that! If you're interested, just contact the gallery and they will put you in touch with me.
What has NSG's Stephen Shachtman been up to during Stay-in-Place? Lots of new monolithic sculptures and some help from a couple of the cutest workers around. What can we say? some of our artists are taking a creative approach to home-schooling; we know hands-on learning can leave a life-long impression. Stephen's kids, Dov and Avi, are helping out with moving the artwork and clearing off Spring snows. Looks like they're doing an awesome job.!
Below are a few #WIP pieces he has in the works at his studio, If you see anything that interests you, please contact us for title scale and pricing. Most of Stephen's work is fabricated from Cor-Ten Steel, sometimes including areas of powder-coating for a pop of color. Check out his other available work here too.
We’ve represented Tal Walton since the mid-90’s and we still get pieces in the gallery that take our breath away. Tal has provided us a virtual studio visit for a look at his process. We hope you enjoy learning a bit more about this great artist.
“My work is about Americana, it’s about our roots. When life was a little slower, a little more simple. ...and l hope (my work) inspires you to slow down, look back, and find joy in things from your past.” -Tal Walton

Because we apparently can’t go a few weeks without a major project we bring you the latest! The atrium window fix. It's pretty strange to see the once indoor fountain outside.
Jeff Allen-Young got us all boarded up and thanks to Moffat Paint & Glass we have safely removed the giant glass panels that were slipping. Next we have some new metal (wood was used before #ThanksSeventies) reinforcement coming in and replacement of the glass.
Follow this post for updates on the project... we'll be in good shape soon.
