ART DISPLAY

Creation Revealed

Will Lipscomb Artist

William Lipscomb attended the University of Alabama, where he earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a double major in sculpture and graphic design. Since graduation from college, he has entered multiple art shows to display his paintings, including the West Alabama Juried Art Show, Gadsden Gallery of Fine Art Show, and the International Christian Art Contest just to name a few. During his professional career as an independent artist, multiple awards have been given in recognition of his work.

Will has owned and operated his business, Shadow Rock Art for five years. Individuals and businesses have contracted him for his graphic design expertise including the design of magazine ads, brochures, logos, business cards, and posters. The computer graphics have honed the painting skills for Will, and have enabled him to develop sensitivity to color and lighting in his murals and canvas paintings. Will has completed various styles of murals in elementary schools, prisons, hospitals, gyms, restaurants, churches, and private homes. The sizes of murals have been up to eighty feet across, but normally range about ten feet by eight feet.

He has completed sculptures with various types of media, such as wood, metal, bronze, bubble gum, and hard candy. Dimensions of his sculptures range from small pedestal works to large wall pieces up to six feet in diameter.

Will currently resides in Castle Rock, Colorado with his lovely wife, Brandy, and three kids, Kate, Cali, and Joey. He continues to depend on God to provide for him and his family through the gift of art that the Lord has given him.

Lipscomb's exhibit runs April 10th through May 11th.
