Fresh Gallery to feature Mike Maloney for month of December

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.
