Studio 7 Fine Arts to host sculptor Tim Cotterill
Lovers of art and nature will be welcomed to experience a brilliant showcase of bronze frog sculptures with their creator, the Frogman, at Studio 7 Fine Arts Gallery, 400 Main Street in downtown Pleasanton.
On Saturday, Aug. 28, renowned artist Tim Cotterill, “The Frogman,” is presenting his latest work at the Gallery, offering some of his brilliant pieces. The Frogman, originally from Leicester England, is well known for his creative works, including his signature bronze, platinum and stainless steel frog sculptures, art pieces that epitomize the colorful, joyous and zany creatures.
Tim’s frog sculptures are featured at Studio 7 Fine Arts in the most eye catching colors, such as neon greens and blues, fiery reds, bright yellows and silver. Studio 7 Fine Arts will also feature a very special collection for the Gallery, called “Vanquish” which is a special edition of stainless steel frogs. Vanquish is the first Frogman sculpture edition that is cast in striking high-polished stainless steel, and in a limited edition count. The Vanquish creation is directly influenced by the elegant but muscular bodies of today’s emerging car designs.
All of Cotterill’s remarkable sculptures make ideal accoutrements to a living room, desktop or kitchen, really just about anywhere.
“The Frogman always creates excitement through his work and the gallery is continuing to offer exclusive collections, such as Vanquish,” said Dirk Christiansen, owner of the Studio 7 Fine Arts. “The Saturday event is going to be very different and lots of fun for contemporary art and nature lovers alike.”
