DAVID HUBBARD

I have been an ironworker for more than thirty years and have been running my own business as an art installer and sculpture conservator for twenty years.

Two years ago, it was my privilege to be selected to create a fifteen foot stainless steel sculpture called "Night Boat" for Potomac Elementary School, in Potomac, Maryland and this changed the direction of my art. In the past, I have made metal sculptures out of flat pieces, and found objects, but not truly three-dimensional shapes. This has changed since the Night Boat. I am now making fully volumetric sculptures and am getting a very good response from galleries and critics. The Monument Series was just featured in a summer show sponsored by Zenith Gallery, in Washington, DC. I have been entering many competitions outside of this area as well. I am currently working on an eight foot tall relative of the Night Boat.                                             David Hubbard

David has been a metalworker for more than 30 years. His work in the 1980’s at the Smithsonian prepared him for starting his own art-related business. He has been the owner of Hubbard’s Fine Arts Services since 1987, performing sculpture conservation and art installation. David’s work is currently exhibited in Hand Pulled, a Juried Mid- Atlantic Print Show at the Ellipse Arts Center, and in 29 Artists/29 Years at the Zenith Gallery and this past June at the Sculpture Invitational, Montpelier Arts Center in Laurel, Maryland.
