The Carving Studio and Sculpture Center hosts Connecticut sculptor John O’Reilly as Artist in Residence for the month of August, 2018. John O’Reilly received his MFA from the New York Academy of Art. His sculptures depict animals constructed from the artist’s own imagination, memory, and found images. These works often portray the animals in an ambiguous state between sleep and death.

John O’Reilly will discuss his work in an Artists Talk on Wednesday, August 8 at 7 PM. The event at 636 Marble Street, West Rutland is free and open to the public.
