Artist Tells How Sculpture's Made

A local sculptor and painter will be talking about how bronze sculpture is made, tonight, at the Sagebrush Community Art Center on Fifth Street in Sheridan.

The presentation, by Mike Flanagan of Dayton, will be given from 7-8. The program is free and open to the public.

Flanagan is known for producing a sculpture of Wyoming Rancher Herman Werner for the National Cowboy Hall of Fame. He was also commissioned to create a 9th British Lancer on horseback for the historic IXL Ranch near Dayton and four life-size North American wild sheep for the North American Sheep Foundation in Cody.

Organizers of the talk say the artist's appreciation for Wyoming wildlife is reflected not only in the subject of his sculptures, but in the anatomical accuracy of the wild sheep, bison, bear, elk, deer, eagle, blue heron, gray Jayhawk, and other animals he has sculpted.
