Glenn Dasher: "Bronze and Marble: Sculpting Techniques from the Ancient World"

On Thursday, March 8, Glenn Dasher, MFA, will lead a discussion of how ancient sculptors worked with stone and bronze. Dasher has led summer programs in Cortona, Italy teaching students about various sculpture techniques and taking them to the famous quarries at Carrara. Professor Dasher will bring demonstration pieces as well as tools to show how ancient sculptors went from raw materials to the famous sculptures we now see in museums around the world. The presentation will be at 7:30 p.m. in Union Grove Gallery, UAH Campus (white church-like building between University Center and Morton Hall on the north side of campus).

Check out the photographs: the first is from the quarries at Carrara, and the second is one of Dasher's works, "An Ill-Wind."
