The storyteller and the sculptor have something in common… they create lasting, meaningful images. The storyteller’s plot is the sculptor’s clay – the substance of images. Come and experience the interplay of artists with two local storytellers and a sculptor. Professional storytellers Kathy Santopietro Weddel and Ron Elms will craft stories of artists in the midst of an exhibit by sculptor Jerry Boyle. In addition to the stories the performers will share how the art of sculpting a story is much like fashioning a bronze sculpture.
Don’t miss this unique evening and its engaging dance between stories and sculpture!
Kathy Santopietro Weddel has told stories professionally for over 25 years and in that time has come to appreciate applied storytelling in areas of education, health, spirituality, community and business management. She engages audiences with a unique telling style and loves crafting a story to meet audience purpose from pure entertainment to formal instruction. She was a featured storyteller for the 2014 Regional Showcase at the National Storytelling Network Conference in Phoenix and is a member of and performed for the Northern Colorado Storytellers and Rocky Mountain Storytellers.
Jerry Boyle has been a professional sculptor for over 30 years. He has lived in a variety of places throughout his life including the mountains of Idaho, the desert area of Texas, near the rugged cliffs of the North Sea in England, the snowy oil fields of Wyoming and the historical district of Boston. Jerry’s artwork reflects his broad range of experiences in travel as well as his passion for understanding the human spirit, ranging from a child’s playful perspective to the insightful journey of the elderly. His collection includes work that addresses a variety of themes including Irish lore, the art of aging, mental health, human expression in faces, and the enchanting splendor of trees.
