First Friday is right around the corner for December, 2014. At Fresh Gallery, we like to highlight our artists during the First Friday festivities. For December, it is our pleasure to feature Mike Maloney.
Mike Maloney is a bronze and pewter artist. He was born in Austin, TX to parents who loved art and encouraged his own path, beginning with woodcarving with his father. Years later, he began using wax and clay to form models that aided in his carving. The softer medium allowed for more refined pieces that would later be cast in metal.
Our mission is to transform lives and enrich the community through the arts.
Financial assistance for the Springfield Regional Arts Council is provided by the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency. SRAC is also supported by its partner — the Springfield-Greene County Park Board.
