Jon Riedeman: Birds of Prey
December 2, 2018 – January 2, 2019
The work of sculptor Jon Riedeman will be on display at the Norfolk Library through the month of December. Jon has been making art for three decades, the last two in Norfolk. He has a BA in Art from Bucknell University and an MFA in Sculpture from Penn State University. He has been Sculptor-in-Residence at the Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site in Cornish, New Hampshire, and has won several awards including a MacDowell fellowship and a Connecticut Commission on the Arts fellowship. His work has been shown in museums and galleries throughout the region and is in several private collections. Jon writes: “My recent sculpture is an exploration of the mystery and perplexity of the natural world and our connection to it. I am intrigued by the rich history of animals in art, both in an allegorical role and as an invocation of spiritual power.” Please join us for the opening reception for the artist on Sunday, December 2, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m., graciously hosted by the Library Associates.
