David Hyduke Art Opening at Arts Center of Saint Peter
SAINT PETER, MINN. — Nineteen new steel sculptures will be on display from April 6-29 at the Arts Center of Saint Peter, in the ﬁrst solo exhibition of steel work by Kasota-based metal sculptor David Hyduke.
“My work has predominately been cast in bronze, having operated my own foundry for the past 35 years,” says Hyduke. “Last year I made a steel candle holder as a wedding gift. I had fun doing it, so just kept going. It allows for working in a larger scale with greater ease than bronze casting. While sheet metal has some limitations, I enjoy the challenges of a new medium along with the restrictions it might bring.”
The public is invited to the opening reception on Saturday, April 7, 3:00-5:00 p.m. at the Arts Center, as well as a site-speciﬁc performance by Gustavus Adolphus College dance students on Saturday, April 14, at 3:00 p.m.
Hyduke has been represented by Imprimatur Gallery, Peterson Fine Art and Art Resources, all of Minneapolis. His work can be seen at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, the Metropolitan Medical Center in Minneapolis, the Children’s Hospital in St. Paul, Concordia College in St. Paul, and Investors Diversiﬁed Services in Minneapolis. Major commissioned works are at the Anoka County Courthouse, Good Counsel-School Sisters of Notre Dame in Mankato, and Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter. He has been involved in the restoration of historically signiﬁcant monumental sculpture, and has done numerous art residencies in Minnesota schools.
The Arts Center of Saint Peter is located at 315 S. Minnesota Avenue, Saint Peter Minnesota. To learn more about this and other events visit www.artscentersp.org
