Exciting News as we say Goodbye 2020!
Looking back at the challenges of 2020, we also put our lens closer to the great opportunities and appreciation for this year. Thank you all for being a part our 2020! Art has truly brought us a new way of communication of hope during this unprecedented times.
Ryan T. Schmidt was named "Artist of the Month" for the month of December, 2020 by the Fountain Hills Art League.
One of the most exciting news as we close 2020 is the launch of our e-commerce site through
This will be a great addition to the annual in-person event coming up in January 2021. Our viewers will now have more ways to connect and collect, and be able to browse artist's inventory live in the comfort of their own sofas!
In a few weeks, we are also taking you back to where we started earlier this year! We are returning to the 31st Annual Celebration of Fine Art. The show is the only ONE in Arizona that provides people from all walks of life the rare opportunity to watch art develop and interact with the artists. It is a place to meet, connect and engage with artists and their artwork, watch new works come to life, and enjoy life-sized and monumental sculptures at the Sculpture Court.
Here are some of the photos of the art studio last January:
Earlier this year, HBO also launched Season 3 of Westworld Series, which filmed Ryan Schmidt's stainless steel sculptures. It is great to have artwork be a part of the entertainment industry especially during lockdown when most of us watched TV at home.
Meanwhile, the International Institute of Welding IIW Annual Assembly that was initially planned to take place in Singapore’s iconic Marina Bay Sands (last year's was held at Bratislava) ~ transformed into a fully on-line event, offered the international welding community the possibility to have a real IIW experience through a renovated approach. That includes the Welded Art Exhibition featuring one of the most popular Sculpture by Ryan Schmidt “Inception”, one of a kind, unique, abstract and contemporary piece. The exhibition was presented to the delegates encouraging the young graduates, technicians, welders, professors and the youth to take up welded art.
