Adam Long Sculpture Studio Back in Action

Adam’s studio didn’t produce as much in 2020 not because of Covid-19, but because he has been rehabbing a new home and studio for himself for 9 months. Although not complete the studio is up and running now!  January saw 6 new sculptures in progress.

Two Recent Awards in April for Adam Long Sculpture

  1. Adam Long Sculpture received a grant from the Puffin Foundation for his Feral Plastic: Sea Turtle Project sculpture series.  The foundation was very generous and Adam is very honored to be gifted with this grant.
“Street Junk” sea turtle sculpture from the Feral Plastic™ sculpture series by Adam Long is filled with random plastic objects collected from within a mile of the Missouri River, USA before it could be washed into the water and float to the ocean.

2. The St. Louis Artists’ Guild awarded Adam Long Sculpture a third place prize for Breeze in the Boughs in the 2019 Members Exhibition.

Success at recent art fairs

Many Adam Long original sculptures have joined good art collections in the past few weeks at Sculpture in the Park in Loveland, CO and The Art Fair at Queeny Park in St. Louis, MO!  Including several Baby Sea Turtles in the Feral Plastic project which is also coming along well.  Check out updates on Facebook: Adam Long Sculpture and Adam Long Sculpture: Feral Plastic

The next exhibit will be in two months in the wonderful and exclusive Art at the Shaw Nature Reserve where my work fits in amazingly.
