Not Just Another Pretty Face 2019

Program Overview


John Himmelfarb

Every time I have worked with someone through NJAPF, it’s been different. Usually someone looks at my website, sees some things they like, and comes for a studio visit. We talk about the many possibilities within their budget and how a new project can be generated that reflects something personal for them. It might be as simple as making something the right size and color to fit their collection/ space. Other times it has been something specific, like a piece of information or an artifact that needs to be included. Often, I visit their home before reaching a plan.

I can produce sculpture in several media, for indoor or out: anywhere from a small bronze for the coffee table or a full size truck that can be used as a station car at the country home; a drawing or a painting that gets its start from our conversations.
