Artist Ken Newman of Cambridge is no stranger to accolades. In his long career as a wildlife artist--having exhibited in over 30 museums and art centers throughout the United States--Newman has won many awards and has received plenty of recognition for his work. Well, Ken, get ready for more.
Newman is making Idaho proud once again--he recently won a couple of awards for his wood sculpture Turbulence on Horse Creek at the Society of Animal Artists 45th Annual Art and the Animal exhibition at the Nevada State Museum.
The Society of Animal Artists is an international art organization associated with the Salmagundi Club in New York (New York's fine artists center for 130 years) and was founded in 1960. Newman has been a member of the SAA for four years and this is his second receipt of the Creative Excellence Award.
Turbulence on Horse Creek is carved from a single piece of Northern California redwood root and depicts an otter chasing brook trout.
