Sculpture with Peter Manion: From 2D to 3D

Create a piece of Universal Turf, our first floor gallery of works by Saint Louis artist Peter Manion, to take home in this sculpture-meetsdesign workshop. Peter will walk us through a simplified process of the techniques he uses to create massive works of felt, plaster, and dye. His works are meant to be changeable and ever-shifting, so you may be surprised by the results! This workshop is meant for beginners and sculptors alike.

Peter Manion is a Saint Louis-based artist and received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Manion’s works hint at a background in drawing, and his emphatic strokes and subject matter offset a playful use of material, style, and sense of humor. Manion’s use of nontraditional methods, materials, and practices gives his work an animative quality, lending variance and movement to what once was undisturbed, bringing the work closer to the idea of a living object.
