Vessels Redux: Sculptural Boxes at Las Vegas City Hall, April 12 - June 8, 2018

A ceramicist for many years, the vessel as iconography figures prominently in Mike's oeuvre.  These seagoing vessels, Cruise Ships, Tramp Steamers and Freighters, are made of various hardwoods with drawings embedded in resin.  Some have resin drawings inside as well.  Mike intends that the viewer interact with the ship when possible.  These works are available for sale by contacting the artist at mccollum@olympus.net.

Many thanks to Jeanne Voltura, Visual Arts Specialist for the city of Las Vegas, for making this exhibit possible.
