Oregon artist Rodd Ambroson was recently selected for a show titled Portraying the Human Spirit at the prestigious Bennington Center for the Arts in Vermont. Two bronze sculptures by Ambroson will be featured: ‘Morning Song’ and ‘Dawning of the Day’. Both sculptures are figurative, depicting women in poses of contemplation and tranquility. Ambroson’s background as a medical illustrator gives his work anatomical accuracy while engaging the senses, mind, and heart.
The Bennington Center for the Arts is a non-profit full-spectrum art center built by philanthropist Bruce Laumeister. The Bennington is known for holding some of the finest art exhibitions in the country.

The focus of the Bronze Coast Gallery is to provide education in sculpture and the in depth process of bronze casting. The gallery also spotlights the finest in original painting, photography and giclee reproductions, and features more than thirty award-winning regional, national and international artists.
