Altering Skins - Surface to Form
BY ROBERT OPPECKER
@ VOL 4
ON MAR 09, 2013
There are 3 generations of artists in Robert Oppecker's family. His father was a prolific abstract artist in the 40's, 50's and 60's. Robert is a scupltor and silversmith. And his son is studying graphic design at VCU. Robert's own work focuses on form, line, and volume, but because of the silver medium he does not get to do much with color on the surface. To capture this "intergenerational energy", Robert, along with the help of his son, Michael, explore ways to meld the surface treatments with the scupltural expressions.

ON MAY 12, 2016
Contemplating retirement after successive careers as an attorney then city administrator in his hometown of Batavia, Illinois, Bill McGrath has begun pursuing his love for art, specifically working in metal sculpture. Sculpture, like any artistic endeavor, presents the opportunity to express oneself to others, but also requires some emotional distance to remain true to one’s visions. He also shows how public art, sculpture in particular, can add to a community’s sense of place by speaking to values, history, and universal experiences, such as fear.
