KENT — The Kent Memorial Library is pleased to announce a sculptor talk by Peter Woytuk on Saturday, Jan. 18 immediately following the KLA Annual Meeting at 2 p.m. at the Kent Town Hall, 41 Kent Green Boulevard, Kent. (snow date for annual meeting and sculptor talk is Saturday, Jan. 25.)
Peter Joseph Woytuk was born in 1958 in St. Paul, Minnesota. He was raised in Massachusetts and graduated from Kenyon College, Gambier, Ohio in 1980 with a degree in Art. After college he had an old-school style apprenticeship with sculptor Philip Grausman in Connecticut, where he learned the techniques of modeling clay, mold making and bronze casting, thus beginning his own career as a sculptor. By 1995 he was well established and exhibiting throughout the United States and parts of Asia. Woytuk sculptures are displayed in such collections as Dean Witter Reynolds in New York, Diane Von Furstenberg in New York, Grounds for Sculpture in New Jersey, the Hotchkiss School in Connecticut, Kenyon College in Ohio, the North Carolina Zoological Park in Asheboro, the Weisman Museum at The University of Minnesota in Saint Paul and Texas Tech in Lubbock.
This event is free and open to the public. All attendees will have a chance at winning a Peter Woytuk Bronze. To register or for more information call the Library, 860-927-3761; email email@example.com; stop by the Library; or visit the Library’s online calendar at www.kentmemoriallibrary.org.
The Library will temporarily move on Jan. 15, to #19 & #23 Kent Green Boulevard for a few weeks. The estimated time of returning to 32 North Main Street is early February. The Library is closing so it can take care of some long-deferred and necessary repairs including asbestos remediation and new carpet installation.
