An Artist in the Field -Africa

In October of 2013, a group of mostly SAA member artists traveled to Tanzania to participate in a project to fight against the poaching of elephants, which has reached a critical stage. In addition to elephants, the artists saw and photographed/sketched many other species.

Sandy Scott, sculptor, was one of the participants and has written an excellent series about how an artist works in the field. Check out her blog for a series of articles on how an artist gathers reference in the field for work in the studio:

SANDY SCOTT: A RETROSPECTIVE, produced by David J. Wagner, L.L.C., will premiere in 2016 at Brookgreen Gardens, the famed estate of sculptor Anna Hyatt Huntington, in Murrells Inlet, SC.
