SeE tuRtLEs sWimmiNG

Jax Kalin's avatar Jax Kalin

SeE tuRtLEs sWimmiNG is a large stream of sculptural artwork exhibiting the signature technique of Indiana artist, Jax Kalin. These mixed media turtles are drawn onto and hand cut from wood, painted with acrylic and metallic enamels, then enhanced with glass, metal leaf, mirrors, lucite and epoxy resin. Each one stands alone as a piece of fine art, but together they create a dynamic presence in gradient hues from earthy copper metallics to sherbet pastels. Spectators can walk along and read about each piece - names, sizes, supplies used, plus random facts about sea turtles just for fun. Also present will be a photo op area and some albums of the project details for visitors to thumb through. Displaying over 70 pieces, sEe TuRtLEs sWimmiNG seeks to beautify the surrounding environment and engage the public, a place to linger, to learn, and simply enjoy art for art’s sake. (**Please note pieces are in still in progress.** Thank you.)
