Viewers at the Martha Pace Swift Gallery were treated to a demonstration of James Watts working in sculpture. James loves working with young artists, and helped several youngsters (and a few parents) learn to make sculptures out of non toxic materials. In addition he answered questions about his own work and history in the arts.
James is an amazingly down to earth and humble about his talents, and he loves to be challenged by new and different adventures in art making, learning from each process. Whether he is painting, sculpting carving or applying metal to carved forms, Watts handles his materials with a light touch, bringing the attention of a craftsman, the insight of an engineer, and the playfulness of child to his works.
If you haven't yet visited the Swift Gallery at NTC Promenade, I highly encourage you to take in this innovative tour-de-force before it dissappears.
