[Update: Call Now Closed] Call For Art – Client Seeking Sculpture for Niche

by Jason Horejs on 04/19/2012 · 44 comments


We are working with a client in Scottsdale who is seeking a sculpture for his entry niche. He has expressed a specific interest in contemporary figurative sculpture, but may entertain other options. The niche measures 57″ high and about 36″ wide at the base. We need something vertical.

The client has budgeted up to $5,000 for the piece. Please keep in mind that this is the retail amount – after the gallery commission proceeds to the artist would be $3,000. Also, this must be an existing, available sculpture – our timeline does not allow for casting or creation of the piece.

If you have a piece that might be a candidate for the space please email me an image directly: Please keep in mind that the client will be making a selection from the image, so background and image quality are important. Image file should be no more than 6 MB – larger files may be rejected by our email server.

Please include in the body of your email:

Title, Dimensions (h,w,d), Material, and retail price.

If you don’t have an appropriate piece but know someone who might, please pass this request along.

We are on a tight deadline for this project – all images should be received no later than 4/26/12.

The sculpture I have in mind is not on my website, as it was completed quite a while ago, and I have just asked my foundry to cast it in bronze. A standing female nude, 32 inches high. The style is similar to the smaller life-studies on my website. It may work in the alcove with a raised base. I am in Vancouver at present. Will be back in Tucson on Monday, the 23rd and could email you a photo of it, if you haven’t found anything suitable by then.

Have a few great options between two sculptures, but I need to know your (client’s) budget and your commission. Thanks


Moana Ponder April 19, 2012 at 9:09 pm

I have just sent you an email with particulars about three different pieces that may be what you are looking for. Please see the email for details.


Hal Stewart April 19, 2012 at 9:33 pm

DAVID CARMICHAEL April 19, 2012 at 10:55 pm

The color and shape of my piece, THE SOURCE, would be amazing in that niche.

I would be honored to have it placed in that location.

Please call me or email me if you’d like more details. I sent you the image, plus it is on my website and on the XANADU STUDIO segment as well.

Best thoughts,
David Carmichael

I have two sculptures that may just fit perfectly.

One is ‘Electric Samba”
Painted wood. 34 x 28 x 55 inches tall with the shade as an abstract lamp. It was originally a sculpture without the lamp hardware and the shade, the wire was hidden within the work. The lamp hardware and shade can easily be removed making it about 45″ tall. The piece has flowing rhythm of various shapes all made of wood that has the feeling of motion. It has a retail price of $5000 as shown on my web site at and displayed in the gallery . More images coming later today.

The second piece is also a vertical painted wood sculpture, 42″ tall, that will fit in the space . It’s titled “The Lovers” and it’s made of two intertwining sculptures It’s a stunning and intriguing piece made of two separate sculpture that symbolize the man and the woman embracing each other in a totally abstract way becoming one . These two pieces have the versatility of connecting in several different ways just like men and women do.
Each part can be purchased separately at $2500 or together at $5000
It’s being photographed today and we’ll send many shots from different angles for your client’s or your consideration.
PS. The De Kooning webinar was fabulous.

I have a few pieces that run from 21-25″ high and would fit if on a raised platform. Not figurative but very sensual, organic stoneworks. Please check out A Question, Joy and Flowering Moon on my website.




Maggie Carle April 20, 2012 at 3:58 am

I have 3 pieces on my website.. that are still available.
Lady of the Laths, The Helmsman, and Rose Woman Walking. Each of these pieces can be hung by clear fish line.. or attached to a pedestal and rod.. and may be turned and viewed from every direction.

Thank you for your consideration.
Maggie Carle


arlene rush April 20, 2012 at 4:45 am

Have a piece called liberation but it is 9,000-(List price).
Could come down 15%, the most I can do.
Let me now your thoughts and it is on my website.



Todd Burton April 20, 2012 at 5:33 am

Alsea Nymph- Is available in cast bronze and an original in forged and fabricated steel. Check under sculpture drop on website. Thanks


Rita Dianni-Kaleel April 20, 2012 at 5:40 am

I have two relief sculptures that might be considered titled “Transition” and “Flight Pattetrn”.

They are on my website:

Thank you


Kimberly Vanlandingham April 20, 2012 at 6:16 am

I would love for the client to allow us to see what they chose, maybe just a photo here on the blog.


Rita Dianni-Kaleel April 20, 2012 at 6:16 am

The two relief pieces I have available for consideration are “Transition” 48Lx31W and “Flight Pattern IV ” They can be seen on my website.
Thank you,
Rita Dianni-Kaleel


Thomas Zahn April 20, 2012 at 6:17 am

It would be helpful to know the base dimensions of the niche. Also is he interested in a male or female figure. I specialize in male athletic figures. Check out my website. Thanks



Perry Wm. Carsley April 20, 2012 at 6:27 am

You can check out my website and follow the link to Sculpture and then to OLSS Madonna. It is an installment for a church and can also be used as a composition for any public space. She is sitting upon a stone with the sea lapping up at her feet and the wind filling her shall with air like the sail of a boat. She is 49″ from base to the top of the head. In this proposed project, her upturned hand will be protruding from the niche. From a side view it will break away from the plane of the wall. The material is Forton, which is a polymer/stone composite. It can be colored to look like bronze, marble or most any material. I can have it ready for shipment within two weeks.


Suzanne Wallace Mears April 20, 2012 at 6:54 am

I have pieces, kiln form glass with custom steel bases, that would be perfect. Please look at
my website. Prices are not posted so if you have interest, please contact me. Suzanne Wallace Mears


Carl Wright April 20, 2012 at 7:25 am

Just sent an email with links to my website & prices. If we are a match, will be glad to submit bigger 300 dpi images.



sharon and patrick sullivan April 20, 2012 at 7:31 am

We would have loved to submit our OKeefe pieces in Carrera marble for this but unfortunately we have sold them all! The problem is that it takes two weeks to make each piece. They are at least three ft high and look like they would be perfect! Too bad for us!


David K Wright April 20, 2012 at 7:32 am

Just checking out your system. I am emailing a number of photos. My work is both in bronze and polymer and suitable for this application. However, I might note that it is not possible to do a bronze at 57″ and cost $5,000—unless you cast in the third world.

I have worked as a professional artist for 42 years selling my work around the country in galleries and museums. David K Wright


David K Wright April 20, 2012 at 7:54 am

I thought I might add my website to your information.

Richard Warrington April 20, 2012 at 7:55 am

Jayson The images have been sent to your e-mail there is one more that is at a auction if it doesn’t sell it can be placed on marble base !


Sheila Grubb April 20, 2012 at 9:09 am

We have emailed images of David Robinson to you. You can also see his work on our website.
Thank you for the consideration.


Maidy Morhous April 20, 2012 at 11:15 am

Check out my website – thinking that Trepidation (12″hx9″x8″) would work well, or Ashes To Ashes (17″h x 6″x6″) – I am on the Xanadu website~


Tommy Urbans April 20, 2012 at 11:17 am

I have a contemporary marble sculpture that may fit the bill. If the tile in the niche is not going to be changed, it seems to need a piece that is very light in color or white.

I also have some contemporary torso sculptures, but think they would be a little too small for this application. My work can be seen at Thank you, -Tommy


Donna Mason Adams April 20, 2012 at 12:20 pm

The piece I have in mind is my high polish bronze mask on granite “Chloe”. Limited edition, signed and numbered. She is stunning, and available to view on my website. I currently have one in stock. The gallery retail price just happens to be your listed price.

Laurenn April 20, 2012 at 1:27 pm

I sent two submissions by email to and there are other possibilities on my website. Thank you for the opportunity to present my work.


Jason Millward April 20, 2012 at 1:39 pm

I’ll send some images Monday.


Linda Broughton April 20, 2012 at 2:46 pm

Unfortunately, the sculpture “Spiro Sculpture” would be prefect for this space, but is sold. For future projects please see the website or go to search RALF BROUGHTON. Good Luck to the artist that is chosen! Thank you for this call to artists.
Linda Broughton


Karina Furhman April 20, 2012 at 5:07 pm


I have a small male bronze portrait piece that just came back from a gallery show that would work well on a tall pedastal that I can provide. The piece is not on the website but I would be happy to send you a photo of it.



Laurie Smith April 21, 2012 at 9:59 am

I submitted an email response through your link. I wonder if that met your needs. I don’t see it here.

Please consider my cream bronze lady, “Solitude” for that spot. Her terracotta drape will accent nicely. She stands 28″ x 13″ x 10. I invite you to see my website for additional pieces. “Challenge” would be another interesting subject for this location for it’s relief has great depth and interest, changing as seen from different angles.

Let me know if you need more info,.
Laurie Smith


Joseph Bennett April 21, 2012 at 10:28 am

Wow! So amazing that so many of us “professional artists” have failed to follow the simple directions of emailing a photo! Come on! Jason has asked that you email images to him and so many of the posts above have said something to the effect of “check out my website and let me know if you have any questions!” Do you actually believe that any gallerist is going to take the time to click on your link and scroll through your photos?

Do your homework, folks.

Joseph Bennett, San Miguel de Allende, MX


Arthur Morehead April 21, 2012 at 7:18 pm

Although I can not send a photo of his work I can however recommend this metal sculpture artist is from FT Meyers Florida. His name is Kenneth D. Rowe.


douglas wynn April 22, 2012 at 3:54 am

hello, read your entry and i think i have the exact piece you may be looking for. in fact , i am working on it now and believe it to be , about half way done. it stands now at about 5 1/2 ‘ and approx. 3′ in dia [max]. it is being sculpted out of a solid piece of oak. it is based on a surrealist vision, through dream or early stages of awaking frm sleep. surrealists used this approach at the turn of the century and on occassion, i have these visions for both 2-d and 3-d pieces. basically the form looks like a vertically elongated saddle, maybe w/ the leg or foot holds can be thought of as legs, not intented though. one would have to see my working drawings and photos which i can supply on request. one may also visit my facebook page, i have an extensive gallery of paintings and sculpture , to get the feel of my work. i exhibit art and teach college[ drawing, painting and sculpture] in the pittsburgh area. for more info call – [724] 683-4565, thank you , douglas wynn


Nancy Steinson April 22, 2012 at 8:32 am

I can send a jpg. of the steel sculpture with rust patina which is approximately 36″x 20″x 8″. It is not on my website.


Nancy Steinson April 22, 2012 at 8:34 am

I can send a jpg. of the steel sculpture, entitled Annunciation, which is welded steel with a rust patina, approximately 36 x 20 x 8″.


Charles Fach April 22, 2012 at 11:31 am

I have a raku piece entitled “Atlas”. It was sculpted from raku clay and fired using leaves from a maple tree for the organic material. It has three figures at the base holding a vessel. The dimensions are 21 1/2 inches high and 15 1/2 inches across. The piece is priced at $5,000.00, not including shipping or installation. Photos were sent on a separate email.


Jamillah Jennings April 22, 2012 at 3:05 pm

I have abstract sculptural welded steel sculptures, email me Love Jamillah the Artist


Burneta April 22, 2012 at 3:20 pm

The bronze sculpture, ‘Spirit Seeker’ is a limited edition 2/10. This stunning piece would be appropriate for the Western or Southwestern Art Collector, and would look great in this client’s niche’. The sculpture is 27x8x16 and is mounted on hand picked fieldstone from the Siverdale Quarry and hand rubbed walnut. It is cast at Bronze Horse Foundry near Pawhuska, Oklahoma. This bronze is a composite of the famous Kiowa Chief, Satanta, who signed the Medicine Lodge Peace Treaty at Medicine Lodge, Ks. in the 1860′s and his Great Grandson who was the model. This sculpture is available now and is priced within the parameters you outlined. I have forwarded you several pictures, different poses, for your consideration. Since you did not reveal the subject matter for consideration by your client, it is hard to know what your client is looking for. I hope you find what he/she is looking for. Looking forward to hearing from you.


Gullwing April 22, 2012 at 8:21 pm

Mr. Horejs,

Thank you for sending out your call for sculpture. I have sent photos of two of my completed bronzes to you for consideration. They both follow your client’s request for contemporary figurative sculpture. I’m located in north Scottsdale, so your client could come to my studio to see both pieces in person to determine if one of them would be suitable for his purposes.

Whatever the outcome of your search, I know that each of us who have responded would be eager to see the chosen piece, so please let us know when a decision has been reached.



Wyatt Gragg April 23, 2012 at 8:01 am

Jpegs are in the mail. Mine are also perfect for the CFA…amazing isn’t it? Contemporary figures, contemporary media, open minded and creative artist. WOW, what a combo! I wonder if my 27 years in the studio will help solve the puzzle? Good luck everyone.


Connie Geerts April 23, 2012 at 10:21 am

Please take a look at my website for a number of possibilities for your client. My work is unique and created in cast glass and concrete with the title,dimensions and availability below each piece. Prices are not on the website but they are well within your client’s budget ($3500 and under). I specifically choose to use concrete and glass to represent physical and spiritual aspects of the characters.
Thank you for your consideration and I wish you all the best in the search.
Connie Geerts
*Note that “The Flawed Man” is no longer available.


Betti Franceschi April 24, 2012 at 8:22 am

Please look on my website for my male torso, which is 26″ high.
I can give you this one which is bronze resin. It retails for $6500.
I am in New York.

I am also finishing a female torso, 22″ high, but it is not cast yet.
I can send pictures if you want to see it.


Steven Shapiro April 29, 2012 at 11:07 am

I am so impressed with the depth of response to your call for work. I can’t wait to hear more about your client’s response to all of the work submitted. Please keep me on your distribution list for future opportunities. Best of luck to all of the artists!
