David Dumbrell, Automata Maker


David Dumbrell, Sculptor

We are delighted to announce that David Dumbrell will be our first presenter. David is a sculptor, or more precisely, a maker of automata. He says, “An automaton is, simply put, a moving mechanical device in imitation of a human or animal figure. (Plural: automata.) The art of automata goes back many centuries, usually crafted by superb watchmakers.  Their creations combined exquisite art with precise mechanism.”

As a picture is worth a thousand words, in this case, a video is worth even more, so view his work here: http://www.davestudiorama.com/videos.html

Jackie Conradi-Robertson, President of Artists in Our Midst, will introduce David and share updates on the June West Side Art Walk. http://www.artistsinourmidst.com
