Angelo State Gallery to Feature San Antonio Sculptor
Angelo State University will present an exhibit of recent works by San Antonio-based sculptor Danville Chadbourne, beginning Thursday, Oct. 1, in the Carr Education-Fine Arts (EFA) Building, 2602 Dena Drive.
The Chadbourne exhibit is being presented in conjunction with the Fourth Annual Richard and Pam Salmon Sculpture Competition and Symposium and will be open for free public viewing from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays through Oct. 31 in the EFA Building’s Gallery 193.
Primarily a sculptor in clay and wood, Chadbourne works in a range of materials and in both two- and three-dimensional formats. Over the years, he has created a complex body of work unified by a primal iconography and artifact-like quality emerging from a very personal and consistent formal, aesthetic and philosophical sense. His work has been featured in more than 100 one-person shows and numerous group exhibitions and has been included in numerous private and public collections. Chadbourne was featured in the November 2010 issue of Sculpture Magazine and in the February 2010 and January 2006 issues of Ceramics Monthly. In 2007, he held a residency at ArtSpace India, culminating with exhibitions in Calcutta and New Delhi. In 2013, he was the featured artist for the West Texas Triangle, a consortium of five museums that includes the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts.
On Friday, Oct. 16, Chadbourne will be a panelist for the Salmon Sculpture Symposium, which is co-sponsored by Angelo State and the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts. The free symposium will run from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. in the EFA Building’s Eldon Black Recital Hall.
A native of Bryan, Chadbourne has been a resident of San Antonio since 1979. He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Sam Houston State University and a Master of Fine Arts from Texas Tech University. He taught at the college level for 17 years until he devoted himself in 1989 to working full time on his art.
