Between June 9th and June 27th The National Art Club will be featuring some very talented artists at its 121st Annual Art Show in NYC. Amongst the celebrated artists will be Robin Antar, who is an award-winning stone sculptor.
Specifically in this show, Ms. Antar was chosen, as an award winning member of the National Association of Women Artists, to display her extremely life-like and life-size work boot for all to see. This “boot” was carved out of limestone and stained with oils, which gave it such realistic qualities that people might actually mistake it as the real thing.
And this is no aberration for the work boot alone.
Ms. Antar prides herself on creating stone sculptures that represent everyday objects with a sense of realism.
In addition to the work boot, Ms. Antar has sculpted stone into the shape of Oreos, M&M’s, and Diesel Jeans, just to name a few. (Right now she is busy turning a 6,000 pound stone into a larger-than-life bag of potato chips). Her works are so unique and appealing that she was even featured on HGTV’s That’s Clever.
Ms. Antar’s many works of art can be seen at museums, art galleries, corporate offices, and universities, ranging from the City Museum in St. Louis, to the Nabisco Corporation Gallery, to New York University. In other words, her work shows unbelievable ability, and it brings much joy to many people. So much joy, that people are willing to pay upwards of $25,000 to own her original pieces.
The National Association of Women Artists (NAWA), which Ms. Antar is a member of, was founded in 1889, and is the oldest professional womens fine arts organization in the United States. The NAWA focuses its attention on the monumental contributions of women in the history of American art, and it is reserved for the absolute finest female artists. Being a part of this association is truly a wonderful honor.
If you want to check out Ms. Antar’s work boot sculpture, you can go to The National Art Club, which is located at 15 Gramercy Park South in New York City, between June 9-June 27, 2010. A reception and awards ceremony will be held on Thursday June 17th from 6:00-8:00 pm.
