Our old friend Steve Sack will be showing his wonderfully humorous paper mache sculptures from June 5 to July 10, 2015 at the Inez Greenberg Gallery in Bloomington, Minnesota. In a recent email to me, Steve said that he’s moved on to other art forms, so this will be his first – and last – paper mache gallery show.
According to the gallery website:
Cartoonival will showcase a cornucopia of his rarely seen non-political, lighthearted, oddball characters—in sculptural form. Mermaids with an attitude, tattooed muscle men, mischievous cats, and good-natured aliens will come off the page and off the wall in non-traditional mediums including paper mache, wire, and even seed art! A not-to-be-missed Steve Sack extravaganza!
A few years ago, Steve generously took time away from his real job as a Pulitzer Prize-winning political cartoonist to show us how he made one of his sculptures (the two “bikers” shown above). You can see his creative process here.
Check out a few more of the paper mache sculptures Steve made back in 2010.
So if you live anywhere near Minneapolis, be sure to get yourself to the Bloomington Theater and Art Center while Steve’s paper mache sculptures are on display. You can read more about his show here.
