Works of art are material and materials have meaning. Ron Vellucci is a material guy. He is particularly enamored of wood though other materials are incorporated into his work. Materials are charged with cultural connotations, conveying power, beauty, splendor or humbleness. In his work the tactile nature invites you to look closely. Listen with your eyes and you will hear the language of the materials.
A recipient of grants from both the National Endowment for the Arts and from the State of Maine, Ron’s work is held in corporate and public collections. He has exhibited widely and received many awards. See Ron Vellucci of the Florida Artist’s Group.
