Artist: Bart Walter
Medium: Bronze
"My art evolves from a passion for all living things. I strive to capture the essence of a living being; to explore some kernel of the truth that may have gone unnoticed and to depict an otherwise elusive moment in time."

In my mind's eye, I strip away all that is unnecessary, even as i build the sculpture with layer upon layer of clay. My goal is a distillation of the subject until only true essentials are left.  If in doing so I can reveal some intangible spirit, make evident the soul of my subject, and communicate this in my art; then I have accomplished something real." Bart Walter was born in 1958 in Baltimore, Maryland, he was educated at
Hiram College in Hiram, Ohio where he received his B.A. in Biology
