New Sculptor Hired in Department of Art

August 8th, 2012

Greg Ondo has been hired as the new professor of art in sculpture for the Department of Art. Professor Ondo teaches sculpture and foundry courses, introducing students to a wide array of sculptural materials, techniques and forms. He was central to this summer’s collaboration between the Schoodic International Sculpture Syposium and the University of Maine which brought eight sculptors from South Korea, Taiwan, Japan, Holland, New Zealand and Maine to create large scale stone sculpture out of Maine granite. In addition, Greg is working with Veazie Community School on Clay in the Classroom, as a visiting artist and co-teacher to introduce ceramic techniques and topics to enrich three-dimensional art offerings. This 2012-13 project is funded through the Maine Arts Commission SMART grant.

UM Department of Art students and recent graduates spent six weeks this summer working with eight sculptors from South Korea, Taiwan, Japan, Holland, New Zealand and Maine to create large scale stone sculpture out of Maine granite. These contemporary art works were created for the cities of Orono, Old Town and Bangor as well as for the University of Maine, the University of Maine Foundation, Husson University and Acadia Hospital. Some of these students and alums are pictured here.

In addition, on Saturday mornings, young students from around the area were given the opportunity to learn the processes involved in stone carving, creating small scale, individual works of their own.

Check out the Schoodic International Sculpture Symposium here.
