    Leo Sewell To Talk About His 50 Year Career Of Making Sculptures From Reclaimed Material

    He has played with junk now for fifty years and has developed his own assemblage technique. Leo continues to cull the refuse of Philadelphia out of which he fashions pieces of all sizes, from a life-size housecat to a 40-foot installation.

    His sculptures are composed of recognizable objects of plastic, metal, and wood. These objects are chosen for their color, shape, texture, durability, and patina; then they are assembled using nails, bolts, and screws. The outdoor sculptures are constructed of stainless steel, brass, or aluminum found objects that are welded together.

    People attending this talk are encouraged to bring objects they would like to be reused in sculpture. A list of junk list of things he likes to use is available. Send your request to paaguild@gmail.com with the subject, "Leo Sewell List."

    Pottstown Area Artists Guild is sponsoring this talk. It will be held on Tuesday, April 21st, from 7 to 9 PM in the Boyer Gallery at The Hill School Center For The Arts at 760 Beech Street near the intersection of Beech and Sheridan Streets in Pottstown, PA. This talk is free and open to the public.

    Leo Sewell grew up near a dump and began picking and playing with found objects before age 10. With the help of a father and his adequate workshop, he began to assemble. It was not about art but about building. In the sixties Sewell, at college, learned about modern art and dedicated his life to making sculptures from manufactured objects. Over the subsequent 45 years, he has produced over 4,000 sculptures, mostly representational forms. Corporations, museums, and individuals throughout the world have his works in their collections.
