Artists Statement:

Patricia Vader is a metal artist specializing in public sculpture.

Animals inspire many of my sculptures. Living in a rural area I am surrounded by them, wild or domesticated. They are a natural part of my life and art practice.

Stay has a large shiny nose that invites petting. The sculpture is modeled on my German shepherd Merlot, a huge dog with a friendly face and big triangular ears, who loves traveling and meeting people. He is an entertaining companion on all my sculpture installation trips across the country.

See & Respond

Following the installation of the sculptures, area poets and visual artists will be invited to participate in a juried art show, "See and Respond!" where artists create a piece inspired by one of the sculptures. There will be cash prizes awarded in multiple categories. Visit the See & Respond page for more information.
