Roving Reporter | "RCA Works with Kurt Kangas to Move Sculpture, "Days"" | 2 Photos by Luis Purón


The Rockport Center for the Arts is working with Kurt Kangas, who worked with renowned artist Jesús Moroles, to move Mark Williamson's sculpture "Days" offsite in preparation for upcoming construction in that location.

ABOUT: Mark Williamson (Artist), "Days": Donated by the artist in 2009, Mark P. Williamson and family grew up around Rockport. Williamson’s works have been accepted into more than 20 national juried art competitions since 2002, receiving awards in Denver, Sacramento, and San Angelo.

Williamson perfected his marble sculpting techniques while in residence in Pietrasanta, Italy in 1991, later studying under the Spanish abstract sculptor Xavier Corbero (2001) and Jesus Moroles (2005). While focused primarily on marble and granite, Williamson’s work often displays healthy experimentation in the use of other non-traditional media.

Williamson’s sculptures now sit in the collections of prominent art patrons, Highland Park Township (Dallas), at the University of Texas at Austin, and as part of the Rockport Center for the Arts' Permanent Collection.
