Gallery Without Walls

Francisco Salgado, NW Sculptor with  Contrapposto, a large scale metal sculpture at Lake Oswego's Gallery without Walls in Oregon.

Contrapposto will be in display for the next two years at Evergreen St. & 2nd in Lake Oswego. It's always such an honor to be included in this exhibition.  I enjoyed having the chance to interact with all the art enthusiasts at the opening.

CCC Outdoor Sculpture Show

'Anima Eterna' by Portland sculptor Francisco Salgado. Large scale, figurative blue metal sculpture.

Rick True who runs the scultpure program at Clackamas Community College is organizing his last outdoor show before he retires the next year. Having participated in previous years I was thrilled to be invited back again for this show.  

The sculpture I made for this occasion I've entitled 'Anima Eterna'. It is available for purchase for $4600 and would be a dramatic accent piece to a modern home interior or exterior.

The campus will be filled with sculpture from April 10th to June 15th. 

An artists’ reception featuring the Tuboh Butoh/Sheri Brown Dance Company will be held on Thursday, May 24, from 3 to 6:30 p.m. in the college commons outside the Community Center. The dance company will present “Opening/Processional/Divided by Zero” in two performances at 3:30 and 5:30 p.m. They will continue to perform in various locations among the sculptures throughout the reception.

You don't need a ticket - just drive on out and take a picnic lunch. I promise it will be worth it. Some of my favorite sculptors will be there too.

Sculpture Build Off

  Reed Rothschild invited me to be a part of the 'Sculpture Build-Off'. This creative design and sculpt project is in its third year. Each artist is given three days, ample materials and a space in which to design and fabricate a finished sculpture. After scaling my sketches and maquettes I took the metal to BBC Steel to be cut.

With all the parts in place and the help of Lee Imonen we welded, grinded, and had a great experience among fellow sculptors. We welded, grinded, and had a great experience among fellow sculptors. With great pleasure 'Familia was born a mere three days later.
